Adolescent-targeted interventions require evidence in order to plan, prioritize, implement, monitor, and evaluate measures to reduce morbidity and mortality. However, adolescents tend to be at the margins of global data collection systems. As a result, many aspects of adolescent health, social development, and well-being remain poorly measured. In turn, these challenges create significant barriers to effective policy and programming. Emerging technologies, however, hold a great promise in improving program measurement. In response, the READY+ program adopted a DHIS2 Android software-based management information system (MIS) called Wanda to collect, analyse, and visualise data. READY+ aims to improve access to quality health care for adolescents and young people living with HIV (AYPLHIV) through health providers and peer supporters. In this session, Chengetai will share his experiences in designing and rolling out of a DHIS2 Android based MIS in low resource settings. The session includes recommendations on how this may be scaled and strengthened in similar settings.
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.
