DHIS 2 Symposium Logistics

Hi All,
We are just about three weeks away from the symposium and we’ve had a number of questions about logistics.

If you haven’t yet registered, please note that registration is closing Feb 14th. Space is limited; once we are sold out of seats we will not be able to accommodate any additional participants. You can register here.

If you have any questions please send them to: dhis2symposium2016@dhis2academy.org

Visas: If you need an invitation letter for a visa, please send your request to dhis2symposium2016@dhis2academy.org. Note that refunds are not available at this time, so we encourage our international participants to register but not pay for the ticket until your visa is secured.

**Getting to Hotels from Airport with a Taxi: **You can pay for a taxi using either cash or credit and can expect to pay anywhere between $60 and $90 USD to travel from Dulles International Airport to the hotel. Please keep in mind that amount may vary significantly depending on traffic conditions. You can find more information here: http://www.flydulles.com/iad/washington-flyer-taxi-service.
