With the view of strengthening technical capacity to contribute to the efforts in improving civil registration and vital statistics systems, the workshop aims to increase the knowledge of government statisticians and civil registration officers about the revised international principles and recommendations for compiling, processing and disseminating vital statistics; and to improve their capability in identifying gaps and challenges in applying international standards to improve their civil registration and vital statistics systems.

The workshop will bring together civil registrars and vital statisticians from twelve South American Countries.
