UNICEF, HISP SA and University of Oslo are happy to announce the DHIS2 Level 2 Maps Academy scheduled to take place in-person on 8-12 May at the Protea Hotel, Cape Town, South Africa.
The aim of this academy is to improve the use of maps in DHIS2 as a means of displaying data and how to integrate other/outside sources of data, including population data, into country/district/facility maps.
- Demonstrate understanding and use of latest map features including thematic maps.
- Understand the core data and population layers in DHIS2.
- Produce maps for immunization campaigns and disease surveillance (Implementation track)
- Develop plan for disseminating, training, and use of maps (Implementation track)
- Produce maps in QGIS (technical track)
- Connect to google earth engine (technical track)
- Print large maps for facilities (technical track)
- Dissemination of knowledge, including this Maps Academy, using the Moodle platform.
As this is a Level 2 DHIS2 academy, it is expected that participants have skills in using DHIS2 analytics processes as a basic. If this is your first time working with DHIS2, you are not a suitable candidate.
Who this Academy is targeting
- Registration by country team
- 3-5 participants from each country including EPI and/or disease surveillance leads, HMIS leads, and system admin/developer.
- Participants from NGO or development agencies.
Structure of the Academy
The Academy will include 2 tracks:
Implementation: Focuses on use of the Maps app for Immunization campaign planning (micro planning) and disease surveillance using latest features and population sources. This will include countries building maps to complement their current Excel/REDREC tools.
Technical: Focus on producing and printing maps in QGIS that are not possible in DHIS2 and adding population data from outside sources where available.
