The DHIS2 Symposium will highlight how DHIS2 is being used in creative ways to solve common challenges in collecting, managing, visualizing, and most importantly, using data.

Testimonials

Laura Lincks
ICAP
"These events benefit me so much personally and professionally and I’m excited to see our BAO family again as well as the rest of the DHIS2 community.”
Rodrigo Gramajo
PSI
"PSI has participated in the DHIS2 symposium from the first edition, and we always look forward to this event. It provides excellent opportunities to share practical experiences, face-to-face time with experts, great actionable content and a diverse group of attendees from implementors, tech folks, representatives from ministries and donors. I recommend this event to those that are new to DHIS2 and want a crash course and introduction to the community, as well as those seasoned in this field; both will leave inspired and with new ideas and connections."
