The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) welcomes the submission of abstracts for the first Asia-Pacific CRVS Research Forum to be held from 3 – 4 April 2023. Hosted by ESCAP in Bangkok, this fully online event offers a major research, information sharing, and capacity-building opportunity for participants, who will be able to present at and attend paper presentations and interactive sessions, including networking opportunities. Funding for the Research Forum was provided by the Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Initiative.
The two-day online forum will focus on innovative methods and approaches contributing to achievement of the goals of the Asia-Pacific CRVS Decade (www.getinthepicture.org), as well as showcasing country-level success stories. Depending on the number of papers received, plenary and parallel sessions may be held simultaneously to accommodate papers that meet criteria set by the Forum Organisers.
The primary target group is experienced CRVS practitioners (from National Statistics Offices, Ministries of Health, and Civil Registration/National Identity Authorities) from ESCAP Member States. Other welcomed participants include international organizations, academe, private institutions, and civil society. Authors from Asia and the Pacific will be given preference, but other submissions will be considered if they show relevance to the region.
