In the National Conference held in Hanoi in late 2022, the Ministry of Justice reviewed six years of the implementation of the Civil Status Law, and confirmed that Vietnam needed to further increase the rate of death registration and other vital events as above. It is also essential to promote a stronger collaboration between relevant ministries and sectors as well as agencies at all levels. More financial resources for the implementation of the Law at local levels need to be allocated in order to develop the national civil status database, assuring personnel working in civil status registration, addressing the issue of the low death registration rate, and resolving the lack of timely and full registration of other civil status events.
UNFPA is honored to support the Government of Vietnam to speed up the process of change towards a modern and progressive CRVS system in which data including vital statistics will be shared and used for the formulation and implementation of evidence-based policies and decision-making. And we are fully committed to continuing our interventions for CRVS. 2b1af7f3a8
