2017 DHIS 2 Symposium Call for Abstracts

Dear DHIS 2 Community,

BAO Systems and the University of Oslo are excited to announce the 2017 3rd annual DHIS 2 Symposium Call for Abstracts! The Symposium is planned for mid to late March 2017, at the FHI360 Conference Center in Washington DC with generous support from FHI360. Dates to follow shortly.

As we head into our third year of the DHIS 2 Symposium, the DHIS 2 landscape continues to expand exponentially. Implementing partners are faced with aligning internal systems against national MoH and donor systems. This year, the symposium’s themes will explore this multi-system landscape and how system alignment and interoperability can reduce data duplication, ensure data quality and data management efficiency. We will also look at efforts to drive data usage through innovative apps, analytics or business intelligence tools.

Topics to be explored include:

  • How can we align and harmonize data across stakeholders without jeopardizing competing priorities?

  • How can advances in system interoperability and data exchange help each of these stakeholder get the critical information they need?

  • How is your data used in concrete ways to drive decision-making, course-correction, and impact of your programs?

  • In what innovative ways is DHIS 2 being used - even beyond health technical areas? What innovative apps has our community developed?

  • Have another idea? Send it to us!

Please note that attendance fees will be waived for speakers, but we are unable to cover travel and per diem costs. Please seek approval with your employer before submitting an abstract.

Deadline for submitting your abstract is December 9th. Please limit your abstract length to 2 pages. Email your abstract and any questions to: dhis2symposium@baosystems.com

Many Thanks,



Nicola Hobby
