NCDs and DHIS session today at 15:00 (CEST)

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), also known as chronic diseases, kill 41 million people each year, equivalent to 71% of all deaths globally - most occurring in LMICs. This session will explore progress with using DHIS2 in tracking cancer in Peru and Rwanda and the early lesson learned in the development of the WHO Rehabilitation package.

The presentations include:

  • Data Collected! Update on Tracking Breast Cancer Patients in Peru with DHIS2 presented by Carolyn Bain. More details on Carolyn’s presentation can be found on the CoP
  • Improving the monitoring and care of cancer patients by enabling the information exchange between DHIS2 and Cancer Registry System (CanReg5) presented by Blaise Mafende. More details on Blaise’s presentation can be found on the CoP
  • WHO Rehabilitation digital package development with DHIS2: early lessons learned presented by Wouter DeGroote

Questions during the session (from the zoom chat):

From @Erin.McCrane:
A question for any/all of the presenters - what are the non-negotiables that are needed to have a successful implementation? I work for an international surgical organization that does not have a centralized data collection system, nor do we have tech skill set to develop or deploy something like this. What do we have to have in position before beginning?
