When communities help authorities tally births and deaths, health care equalises

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Recent research suggests that two thirds of deaths across the world are unrecorded. In addition, unrecorded deaths occur more frequently among disadvantaged people.

This raises important questions about the links between material and data poverty. And it has left researchers trying to understand how health authorities can interact with communities to improve these statistics.
