Event description

Description

You want to enroll your daughter in school, but without a birth certificate you are unable to secure a place for her.

Your spouse passes away, but without a marriage license your legal right to your home and land is questioned.

You are ready to launch a business, but without an identity card you are unable to open a bank account and access a line of credit.

Civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems are critical for protecting the fundamental rights and freedoms of women and girls, such as voting rights; for facilitating access to health, education, credit and loans; and for understanding and preventing child marriage.

Yet despite the importance of CRVS systems for women and children, many countries lack capacity to record vital events such as births, marriages, and death. Moreover, gendered barriers and inequalities in CRVS systems persist and are often overlooked.

Hosted by the Centre of Excellence for CRVS Systems at the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Data2X, and Open Data Watch, this Women Deliver side event will bring together gender equality, gender data, and CRVS experts for a thought-provoking conversation about why efforts to achieve gender equality and women's and girls' rights must include CRVS systems.
