Summary 

Implemented by the Ministry of Health into law in 2001, the Certificate of Delivery Assistance, or CEDAP, is the national source for vital birth information. Information collected and added to the birth certificate includes basic data relating to births, stillbirths, and to newborns with congenital malformations. The questionnaire included in the end of the document is divided into sections: the general personal data and socio-demographic characteristics of the parent/s; conditions of the pregnancy; circumstances of the delivery and the health of the newborn; the causes of stillbirth where applicable; and the presence of congenital malformations if present. There are also tables of the “top 30 causes of stillbirth” and “top 25 malformations”.
