High quality civil registration provides reliable vital statistics and many other benefits to individuals, countries and their regions and communities and the world community. This handbook provides guidance to countries to design and conduct information, education and communication activities to support national civil registration and vital statistics systems. It covers development of a communication action plan for community workshops and meetings and for media, and special techniques to reach target groups and less privileged populations and those who live in rural areas. It also discusses resource mobilization, development of the time frame, required resources, and identification and mobilization of human resources. It is one of five handbooks for the International Programme for Accelerating the Improvement of Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Systems, to which the United Nations Statistics Division is focal point.
