DHIS2 for Donors

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.
