Webinar: Verbal and Social Autopsy (VASA) study of under-five mortality, 10 February 2021

What is Verbal and Social Autopsy?

‘Verbal autopsy of deaths uses retrospective interviews with caregivers to document and understand the symptoms and signs of the fatal illness. It is a useful tool to estimate the causes of deaths in a specific population with poor vital registration or medical certification of the causes of deaths. Verbal autopsy has been widely used in household surveys, demographic surveillance sites, vital registration systems and special studies. Social autopsy builds on verbal autopsy by studying the setting, and sequence of decisions and events that leads to death. The focus of social autopsy is to understand the decision-making, care-seeking and actual care that preceded death, to provide insight into social determinants of death and how deaths might be prevented.’

The USAID Health Research Program welcomes you to attend an upcoming webinar on Wednesday, February 10 at 9:00 am EST and 3:00 PM WAT. The Nigeria 2019 Verbal and Social Autopsy (VASA) study of under-five mortality was implemented by the National Population Commission (NPC), in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH), with technical support from the USAID Coordinating Implementation Research to Communicate Learning and Evidence (CIRCLE) project. The study was officially completed and disseminated by NPC and FMOH in November 2020, at both national and regional levels, with high media coverage. The purpose of this webinar is to share the process that resulted in high stakeholder ownership of the study, key findings, and recommendations for action.
