Programs to improve the coverage of civi 1 registration systems need to be carefully evaluated to determine if the actions being taken are actually having the desired effect. As this paper demonstrates merely establishing more registration centers does not necessarily improve coverage of death reporting. Socio-cultural factors which appear to be the reason for lack of improvement in the case of Yaounde need to be addressed if coverage of death reporting is to improve. Suggestions for bringing about improvement of death reporting are presented.
