Hi everyone,

I’m George, currently working with Kemri-Wellcome Trust research programme, Health system research group, Health informatics and Data management unit in Nairobi, Kenya.

previously worked with MOH Division of HIS and was involved in the initial rollout of DHIS2in Kenya. At present, we are running the clinical information network project where we are working with hospitals to improve information management practices using structured and standardized forms in paediatric and new-borns wards for overall inpatient quality of care improvement. We are using DHIS2(KHIS Aggregate) as the reference source of data. I’m interested in attending DHIS2 Academy Workshops to learn experiences from other people

Hi All,
My name is Maya and I a based in Bamako, Mali. I work on a rapid response mechanism that provides humanitarian assistance in food, WASH, non-food items, and shelter to displaced communities affected by conflict and natural disasters. We use DHIS2 as a platform for sharing information (through dashboards, maps, charts, etc.) among humanitarian actors regarding crisis alerts, rapid assessments, and responses conducted (by sector and by region, district, and commune) by different NGOs throughout Mali. As the M&E manager of the rapid response mechanism at CRS, I oversee data collection, usership, and creation and updating of dashboards on the DHIS2 online platform. I look forward to interacting with others to learn more about DHIS2 functionalities and also applications beyond the health sector, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa.

Hi, just to introduce myself to the DHIS2 community. I am a Dutch national with a track record of working in international development in the Far East, Africa and the Middle East. Following my PhD in Health Sector Research, I completed an MPH focusing on Human Resources for Health. My main areas of work are Vaccine Management and Cold Chain Equipment Management, especially interested in HR development, local ownership and sustainability. I have recently worked in Cambodia, Indonesia, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Sudan and Malawi. At present I am in at the Turkey/Syria border working with UNICEF and WHO to improve the immunization services in this conflict area. I am increasingly involved with issues around Data4Action (D4A) and Data4Management (D4M), hence my interest in DHIS2.
