|Abstract:||This case study on tracking the success and the roadmap of the Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Systems (CRVS) of Bangladesh, has been prepared by the Bangladesh CRVS group with the support of WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia, under a project sponsored by the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development and th e World Health Organization. In February 2014, Bangladesh achieved a milestone towards CRVS by completing 100 million birth registrations on the online birth registration information system (BRIS) as part of the Birth and Death Registration Project of the Local Government Division (LGD). There is political will at the highest level to strengthen CRVS in Bangladesh. A coordinated effort is under way to institutionalize collaboration to strengthen CRVS, with support from WHO under the auspices of the Prime Minister's office with leadership by the Cabinet Secretary and four other secretaries of the line ministries, viz., Health (MOHFW), Local Government (LGD), Statistics (SID-BBS) and Election Commission (BEC), and technical support from the Access to Information (a2i) Programme of the Prime Minister's Office.|
