The Civil Register throughout the Vital Statistics provides key information for analysis and planning of multisector policies based on age and geographic distribution of populations. Based on computer systems and automated processes are an integral part of supporting the consolidation of these systems in developing countries in order to reach more acceptable levels of coverage (Notzon , 2014) (WBC & WHO, 2015) and that guarantee citizens the right to a legal identity and citizenship (Ayebale, 2015). This article presents the perspective followed in the implementation of a computer-based system for the Civil Registry and Vital Statistics in São Tomé and Príncipe, which that aims to simplify and streamline existing processes, reduce bureaucracy and improve the provision of services to citizens, contributing a new role and support the assumption that robust Civil Registry and Vital Statistics provide direct benefits to individuals and greater accountability of governments.
