This session provides an introduction to DHIS2 for Education, highlighting countries that have adopted or are adopting DHIS2 for Education and sharing the DHIS2 for Education data use cases in Uganda. Since 2019, the HISP Uganda team in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Sports Uganda and Save the Children have been implementing DHIS2 as a decentralized education data management tool. DHIS2 has been used to respond to the routine data needs which inform planning and evidence-based decision making at district level. In addition, the session presents the innovative ways of how DHIS2 has been adapted to respond to the emergency planning and response during the COVID-19 pandemic and concludes with sharing on the lessons learned during the implementation and next steps for the scale of DHIS2 for Education in Uganda, the region and beyond.
Participants receive access to Hopin and can browse the venue and schedule, visit expo booths, network, etc.
While donors have long supported the use of DHIS2 for projects and implementing partners, more and more donors have adopted DHIS2 as an internal reporting system. In this panel, we’ll bring a group of donor representatives together to discuss how DHIS2 adoption has supported their internal data management needs. We’ll also touch on how this adoption has helped to better align with Government and implementing partners.
DHIS2 as an open-source product has had incredible success across the development sector. However, no one software can be everything for everyone. In this panel, we’ll look at three different use cases to show how various organizations have augmented open-source DHIS2 with a commercial software, and why this approach can provide best in class solutions for a variety of use cases.
