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

Hi all,

I’m Harriet from the UK but work on projects around the world. I’m currently working on a project where we plan to use DHIS2 as an internal M&E platform so am very interested to hear if anyone else in the community has used DHIS2 in a similar way and if they would be willing to share their experiences.

Look forward to getting stuck in and becoming part of the community!

Hello DHIS Community,

I’m Jins THOMAS from India, started with DHIS2 few months ago. I used to work for Nokia Networks before, but currently doing some experiments with Health sector as a contract consultant with Clinton Health Access Initiative

I sincerely aspire to contribute to DHIS2 tools and utilities which will be useful for integration,testing, automation & extraction. I have started with a small snippet to extract Organization Units from JSON(api) to csv files. I will publish when I make it little more generic and robust.

I would be grateful if somebody can tell which group/community i shall publish such snippets/tools.

Thanks & See you all around.

Thank you a

Hi DHIS2 community members. I am pleased to join this community this week only after completion of online DHIS2 fundamentals and DHIS2 Analytic tools- level 1 from DHIS2 academy in the University of Gondar, Ethiopia. Therefore I would like to install and configure DHIS2 on my laptop and further study the customization part. Any one who can guide me on how to proceed.
