SAmple Vital events Registration with Verbal autopsy (SAVVY) research project is a demographic surveillance system within Sentinel Panel of District (SPD) platform that collects and analyzes health community-based information data with intent to determine community birth trends and cause-specific mortality fractions in a population that has no complete or incomplete vital registration system. SAVVY provides nationally representative estimates of mortalities based on age, sex, residence and zone, and it covers about 2% of Tanzania mainland population.The cause-specific mortality fraction is determined based on verbal autopsy interviews with next of kin or other caregivers.
