dc.description.abstractWHO in its Improving Mortality Statistics in Africa Technical Strategy 2015-2020, calls for an immediate need to design better mortality statistics systems. The regional strategy promotes three key elements: timely registered deaths by sex, age, and place of occurrence; a focus on improving death registration and cause of death at health facilities; and representative and scalable designs for identifying deaths and their causes at community level. This report discusses recent progress and challenges, while using assessment, reviews, follow-up and discussions from the regional network. Specifically, the role of the health sector and WHO in improving mortality statistics and cause of death recording and its linkages to CRVS systems is examined. Ways forward, particularly priority actions to overcome implementation bottlenecks, are identified. The objective is to continue working with the countries to convert efforts at all levels and demonstrate improvement on the system in the coming years.en
