For this purpose, the DHIS2 system is implemented in health care institutions and Civil Registration Offices.

Particular attention was paid to the experience in civil registration: reform of legislation and organization of the service, information systems, peculiarities of computerization and registration, the interaction between the various agencies for generating correct statistical data and developing a national population register. Attention was also paid to the development and implementation of information systems, their optimization, sustainability and further reforms.

"This was my first official trip outside the Republic of Tajikistan. This trip really broadened my professional horizons. At present, in close cooperation with other members of our team, we actively introduce all novelties and innovations, which I was fortunate to learn in the process of studying the working methods of the Registry Office Botanica in Chisinau city and the Moldovan Civil Registration Service.

I wish the project success and a possible continuation, "- said a participant of the study tour, Ms. Dostieva S.G., Head of the Firdavsi District Civil Registration Office in Dushanbe.  

«Speaking about the main components of the Moldovan experience, firstly, it should be noted, that it started at the government level with the correct mathematical formulation of problems, such as the introduction of a unique identification number of the citizen. This number is required, in addition to its direct purpose, for linking all data about a person from different sources and agencies, as well as for their analysis and integrated use.  All statistical data, including birth and death, belong to a specific person and can be generalized. This mathematical model is at the basis of the National Population Register. This register is the core of the system and is used by all government agencies, including the Civil registration Office, " – said Mr. Ion Stanciu, project expert.
