Hi, Most countries where I work use DHIS2 for their HMIS, and have used DHIS2 for several years. Their current version is several version behind the most recent and therefore they can not take advantage of the benefits in the more recent versions. There may be support among funders/ppartners to assist MOH with upgrading, and I am wondering if there is experience in this group that would help us understand potential barriers (e.g… a reluctance to upgrade) and important steps (e.g. server upgrade, training, etc.) .
Please share any experiences with upgrading DHIS2 for an HMIS. Would be very interested to hear any specific details about: What hurdles need to be addressed? What resources may be needed? What training is required at both MoH-implementation level and end-user level.
