DHIS2 Symposium 2017 update

Hi all,

the DHIS2 symposium 2017 is nearing and we have seen an impressive number of sign-ups so far.

Speakers for most sessions are confirmed and we will have representatives from a great field of organizations:

FHI, ICAP, Broad Reach, Tableau Foundation, USAID, BlueSquare, M4M, HISP TZ, Tanzania Ministry of Health, UiO, PSI, PATH, GreenMash, VecnaCares, Village Reach, Akros and BAO.

The main topics of the year will be:

  • System interoperability: Emphasis will be on how NGOs and development agencies can align with and strengthen national MoH and donor systems.

  • Information use: Going beyond reporting - using systems as data management tools and enabling data-driven decision making.

We encourage international development M&E specialists, project and program managers, IT staff, consultants and others who are interested to learn more about DHIS 2 implementation to attend. The two-day event will provide opportunity for participants to meet users, implementers and developers and learn about how DHIS 2 could be utilized to support their specific use case.

The event takes place March 23 - 24, 2017 at the FHI 360 Conference Center, Washington, D.C., US.
