This resource kit is intended to aid national agencies, development partners and technical experts to strengthen the monitoring of vital events by providing easy, user-friendly access to technical documents relating to civil registration, cause of death attribution, sentinel and sample registration with verbal autopsy, and demographic surveillance. Timely and reliable information on vital events is useful for governance and a basic underpinning of public health, yet in most developing countries, monitoring of these events is limited: births and deaths go unregistered and causes of death patterns remain poorly understood. The kit is available as a CD-ROM or online
