Field Epidemiology Training Program CRVS Curriculum

An additional component of the Global Program for CRVS Improvement is collaboration with CDC’s Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP), which produces trained field epidemiologists in approximately 37 countries. ISP has developed a 2-week CRVS curriculum to provide the necessary training for a variety of CRVS needs.  The curriculum includes classroom lectures, in-class activities, field-based exercises, and CRVS projects on the following topics:

  • Overview of CRVS systems
  • Civil registration systems
  • Birth records
  • Death records
  • Analysis of vital statistics data
  • Data uses and dissemination
  • Assessment of vital statistics
  • Evaluation and improvement of CRVS systems

The content and length of the curriculum is tailored for a variety of audiences and training purposes.  For FETP fellows, the CRVS curriculum will introduce CRVS concepts, demonstrate uses of and methods for assessing the quality of vital statistics data, and foster advocacy for strengthening CRVS systems in FETP countries. Additionally, FETP can provide training for local registrars, physician cause-of-death certification, cause-of-death coding, vital statistics analysis, and use of vital statistics data for decision making.

For more information about the CRVS curriculum, please contact Sam Notzon or Erin Nichols.
