Hi Scott, nice to meet you once again. It is Hassan from Somalia who attended WHO data quality app academy training held in Kigali, Rwanda three months back. I would like to know regarding the logistic management Information System you are working on. our country is planning to develop LMIS and i would like to know if we can integrate this system to our DHIS2 platform that we are currently using.

Greetings. I am Trad Hatton, Country Director of the NGO PATH in the DR Congo. PATH presently supports the DRC Ministry of Health with the Emergency Operations Center in Kinshasa which serves as strategic-level data management and data visualization center for the Ebola outbreak response. The MoH and WHO support the Beni-epicenter EOC.

We work with our MoH counterparts in maintaining the MoH DHIS2 Ebola dashboard and are always looking to improve its functionality and utility for decision-makers. We are also hoping to strengthen mobile data collection using DHIS2 tracker for contact tracing and vaccine campaign tracing but have been confronted with technical challenges. We hope to bring additional PATH and MoH staff top this discussion board to enhance DHIS2 Ebola dashboard and mobile data collection.

Welcome to the CoP @Yamuna!

(Scott Russpatrick) #77

@HMIS Nice to hear from you. Yes, we are working on a few LMIS projects at the moment and are continually developing new features to better cover the use-case. I’m uploading here a document that describes our logistics work in Kenya also I’m attaching how dhis2 can be configured to calculated key logistics indicators that we made for West Africa. For logistics our strategy is to be able to cover the reporting and indicator calculations for logistics at facility and community levels. DHIS2 is not well suited for warehouse management or supply chain tracking. For those we suggest using [OpenLMIS, which has interoperability with DHIS2.]. Please feel to reach out to me at so we can talk about your specific requirements. ( Uni of Oslo LMIS.pdf (1.1 MB)
