DHIS 2 Symposium****

March 22-23, 2018

Since 2013, DHIS 2 has become the management information system of choice for many international NGOs working across a variety of sectors. The DHIS 2 symposium brings together experienced DHIS 2 users, technical experts, implementers and trainers across the public and NGO sectors in order to share best practices and lessons learned in the implementation and use of DHIS 2.

The symposium is the only DHIS 2 US-based event. It is an opportunity for participants to learn about the development roadmap of the software, meet the development team and learn about UiO (University of Oslo) initiatives in advancing the DHIS 2 learning environment. The event will showcase use cases that have adopted DHIS 2 in creative ways to solve data management challenges.
