DHIS 2 Symposium 2018 registration now open

Hi all,

The annual DHIS 2 Symposium will be held on March 22nd and 23rd, 2018 at the FHI 360 Conference Center in Washington, D.C.

The global digital health space is moving at a rapid pace, making exponential gains within the last few years. After less than 10 years of development, DHIS 2 is being implemented in more than 60 countries, with almost 30 operating at national scale. This rapid global expansion of DHIS 2 has led to exciting collaborations and partnerships targeted at improving LMIC health systems.

In the 4th DHIS 2 Symposium we’ll look at how international partnerships between NGOs and governments are supporting national system strengthening, ultimately improving the use of DHIS 2 and bringing us closer to harmonization of data.

Android mobile applications will be examined and we will hear from the University of Oslo about efforts to overhaul and re-develop the applications. Biometrics are making concrete gains in development work and we’ll hear how it can be incorporated into DHIS 2.

Other topics to be explored include:

  • What work is being done around DHIS 2 for the Sustainable Development Goals and how that work can be moved forward.

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

  • How integration with other systems like LMIS and EMRs improve national systems.
