On conducting a training seminar on the coding of cause of death according to the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-10)

Within the framework of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) project to enhance the capacity of local experts on population statistics, on December 5-7, 2012 the Statistical Agency under the President of the Republic of Tajikistan conducted a workshop on the coding of cause of death using the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD -10) 10th revision.

The purpose of the workshop was to train specialists of the state statistical offices, the Center for Health Statistics and Information of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Tajikistan and the Vital Records Office of the Ministry of Justice to properly complete death certificates by physicians, to register records of birth and death by civil registry offices and jamoat dehots, to train the employees of statistical offices the rules of coding of cause of death in accordance with the ICD-10. Coordination between these three structures will enable to reduce gaps in collection and processing the data on cause of death, particularly perinatal death in the Republic of Tajikistan.

Statistics on causes of death will give the opportunity to analyze the situation relating to the health of the population, the prevalence of diseases, to analyze and monitor the causes of death, comparability of causes-of-death across countries and periods.

All participants expressed their desire to hold annual seminars at the district level with participation of health workers and maternity hospitals, representatives of civil registry offices and jamoats.
