Recent Publication: Verbal Autopsies

Verbal Autopsy or Cause of Death Census is a new project by SEACO aimed to identify causes of deaths in the Segamat population level. SEACO is collaborating with the Ministry of Health to make sure that the data from this study is well utilised to build a solid evidence base for health policy, planning, monitoring and evaluation of the causes of death. More importantly, the Verbal Autopsy is a great tool to strengthen the civil registry system in recording the cause of death.
