OUR FOCUS AREA

LEGAL IDENTITY AND CRVS




PUSKAPA works to help the government provides legal identity documents for all children and adults, regardless of their gender, socioeconomic status, and ability, and strengthens civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems. Legal identity documents should facilitate their access to health, education, and social services, protection, and economic opportunities. At the same time, PUSKAPA works to ensure that civil registration produces complete and accurate population-based vital data (especially birth, death, causes of death, marriage, divorce, migration, and adoption), and that these statistics inform child wellbeing programs and policies.
