Hi all
My name is Arthur Heywood … been involved with DHIS since its start in 1994 in South Africa.
My major interest is in the USE of data once it has been taken out of the computer … making sure it is of sufficient quality to make decisions with, converting raw data to indicators that health workers can understand and convert into meaningful information produces to distribute to program managers to analyse, interpret and discuss
I look forward to working with you all on using information for ACTION!!

Hi,
I am Arsénio Xavier, from Mozambique, I started to get involved with DHIS in its version 1 in year 2000, at that time working for Ministry of Health. Currently I am working for a national NGO implementing HIV prevention program and we are introducing DHIS2 as a data management platform starting with aggregated data and moving then to tracker. Last week I was in Guiné-Bissau participating in DHIS2 academy for data analysis. It was an exciting experience.

Hello Everyone,

I am based in Zambia. I am currently working as Head M&E at the Zambia National Public Health Institute (ZNPHI), a Statutory Board under the Ministry of Health mandated to Manage Public Health Security. I have worked with the DHIS2 since 2014. Before moving to ZNPHI I worked as Senior M&E Officer at MoH Headquarters, Zambia. The Ministry of Health in Zambia has adopted the DHIS2 as tool for data collection and management. Recently as ZNPHI we also adopted the DHIS2 as tool for data collection and management
I have worked several on DHIS2 Projects. The recent project which I participated in and i am currently heading is the development of the Electronic Integrated Disease Surveillance and Response (e-IDSR) System using the DHIS2. Using the DHIS2 we have developed data-set and tracker based tools. Currently we have rolled out to all the Districts in 9/10 Provinces in Zambia.

The other projector i participated in whilst at MoH HQ was the development of the Community Health Management Information System (C-HMIS), Hospital HMIS (Event Capture), Health Center HMIS using the DHIS2.

At personal level in my capacity as a Pastor and Founder of a Church in Zambia called House of Praise Church to All Nations (HOPCaN), I have developed a Church Information Management System using the DHIS2.

I am looking forward to learn more from everyone on this platform

Greetings,
I am Nada Ghosn, medical surveillance officer at the Lebanese Ministry of Public Health (esumoh).
Working with DHIS2 started in 2014, but expansion started in 2017. DHIS2 is being used for communicable diseases surveillance. Yet, all aggregated-based forms are set with DHIS2 with data entry at source (>2000 users from hospitals, laboratories, medical centers and schools). Currently, case-based forms are in transition from paper to online reporting. First attempt was using event program. But we need to move to tracker program to allow various users to access and edit data using various specific profiles. Hope that the transition will be successful :slight_smile: NG
