Funded by Australia's National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), the Improving Methods to Measure Comparable Mortality by Cause (IMMCMC) project uses a combination of hospital records and verbal autopsy methods to create a more comprehensive means of ascertaining causes of death in an area.
The research activities carried out by this project:
- Provide enhanced means to more accurately estimate causes of death within a population using standardized, easily implemented methods.
- Enable governments, donors, and researchers to make informed decisions about necessary interventions within resource-poor communities lacking vital registration systems.
