23 July 2020 | Open meeting

Knowing how many people are dying and where they are is essential to tracking the virus’ spread and determining its impact. While this sounds simple, COVID-19 has exposed deep and pervasive gaps in death registration systems in Asia and the Pacific, especially in low-income countries. This seventh session of the Stats Café will look at how deaths, including causes of death, are being monitored and reported during the COVID-19 pandemic, and whether it involved changes to the health information system. The session will also discuss how the information about deaths and causes of death is being shared with the civil registration authorities and used for the production of vital statistics.
