It is an opportunity to interact with peers and thought leaders in health systems strengthening, monitoring & evaluation, and analytics.

Day 1: A-Z of DHIS2 configuration
Today, DHIS2 is the world’s largest health management information system platform. 2.4 billion people live in the 68 countries where DHIS2 is used, and with the inclusion of NGO-based programs, DHIS2 is in use in more than 100 countries.

The DHIS2 platform boasts data warehousing, visualization features, and the possibility for data users and policymakers to generate analyses from live data in real-time. From the beginning, priority has been on embracing new technology while also ensuring a robust solution that will work in resource-constrained settings.

Day 2: DHIS2 data analytics and visualization
DHIS2 offers comprehensive and powerful capabilities for data analytics and visualization. This session will focus on understanding these capabilities and how to use them for data-driven decision making, monitoring of data quality, identifying gaps in information and issues in data quality, spotting outliers, viewing trends, and using visualizations to tell a story about data held within DHIS2.

DHIS2 has been greatly improved over the last releases with new apps for data visualization, maps, and dashboards, and participants will get extensive opportunities to try out these applications during practical training sessions.
