  4. Having the Data is Half the Battle

    John Painter, CDC

    Description: CDC will present best practices for analyzing and reporting data from DHIS2. The session walks through the process of conducting a valid and meaningful analysis of malaria cases reported to DHIS2, beginning with appropriately documenting data selection, data munging, and time-series analysis.

  1. Data eXchange Platform: Connecting Data Systems to Facilitate HMIS Integration and Triangulation

    Tyler Porth, Unicef

    Description: The Data eXchange Platform (DXP) is a novel approach to data exchange and integration with the aim of integrating robust data from external data systems into HMIS to facilitate triangulation, data use and data quality checks in a systematic and sustainable way. To do this, an intermediary platform has been developed in DHIS2, which calls data from global databases, reshapes them into an HMIS-compatible data standard that can be imported into national HMIS, and customized to meet a range of national/subnational use cases. Once fully developed, this pathway will also provide a mechanism through which countries could report routine data to increase representation in the global database and potentially reduce the burden of routine global reporting. This session will present an overview of the DXP concept and approach, including practical use cases and applications, roadmap and current progress as well as plans for field testing and country implementation in 2020.

  3. Using DHIS2 to Strengthen Coordination Among Humanitarian Actors for a Rapid Response Mechanism in Mali

    Maya Rao and Ognen Plavevski, CRS

    Description: In Mali, rapid response actors provide assistance to vulnerable households in food, shelter, WASH, health, and NFIs within 30 days of a crisis alert. When displacement occurs, focal points alert NGO actors who triangulate in collaboration with authorities and share the report with OCHA. NGOs with local partners then conduct rapid assessments to identify households’ priority needs and organize a response based on needs. Given the number of actors involved, information-sharing and communication is essential. Due to gaps in data on crisis alerts, humanitarian activities and lack of centralization of information, USAID/OFDA&FFP decided to fund a humanitarian information management platform.
