Verbal Autopsy (VA) Studies for Cause of Death Ascertainment in the Nairobi Urban Health and Demographic Surveillance System

Program: Health and Systems for Health

Developing countries generally lack complete vital registration systems that can produce cause-of-death information for health planning in their populations. As an alternative, Verbal Autopsy (VA) – the process of interviewing family members or caregivers on the circumstances leading to a death, is often used by Demographic Surveillance Systems (DSS) to generate COD data. The aim of the VA project is to collect, analyze and report mortality data in order to describe the burden of disease profile in the informal settlements of Nairobi, Kenya.
