We are delighted to announce that our use-case bazaar session during the 2021 Annual Conference will be hosted on Thursday 24 June, from 16:00.
This year again, we will be showcasing the incredible work around various DHIS2 implementations from different Organisations in Asia, Africa and Europe.
My name is Vikwato Kamanga and I am happy to present in the Use-case Bazaar section at this year’s conference.
I work for the Centre for Infectious Disease Research in Zambia, CIDRZ as a Strategic Information Officer. I am an information specialist and programmer and work with public health, clinical research trials and social surveys data on HIV, COVID, water borne disease vaccines, etc.
The title of my presentation is Development of a harmonized monitoring and reporting system in Zambia using DHIS2. This covers a nationwide implementation of DHIS2 Systems to harmonize the data collection and reporting process carried out for PEPFAR MER indicators.
Thank you. I will be happy to be part .
My name is Timothy Harding and I am excited to present my topic “Use DHIS2, Keep Your Excel: PEPFAR’s Experience Ingesting Excel Spreadsheets with a DHIS2 Custom App”. Through BAO Systems, I work on the PEPFAR project (President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief) as a software architect from our offices in Washington, DC. In my presentation I will be briefly reviewing the successes we’ve had when using DHIS 2 as a front end for ingesting excel files from a distributed user base.
I’m going to have a great opportunity to share a presentation titled: Case study: Consolidating HIV data from 19 DHIS2 instances. I’m technical director at Fjelltopp and together we try to harmonize public health data. At work we often work with many countries using DHIS2. In my presentation I will show how we solved the challenge of mapping different metadata structures from 19 national DHIS2 instances into a single, common data structure used by the HIV estimation process for all of the countries.
Hello Everyone, I am glad to be here.
I am Tsegaye Shewangzaw, Monitoring and Evaluation Officer from Addis Ababa City Administration Health Bureau. My presentation is titled: How DHIS2 become the cornerstone for Data Use? I will try to elaborate, on my presentation, how DHIS2 is being used as a main source of reliable data for decision making, by using a team as a tool called PMT, on a variety of issues related to health care.
Hello everyone, I am excited to be part of this year’s conference. My name is Daniel Sejerøe Hausenkamph and I am an adviser on anti-corruption in the health sector at the U4 anti-corruption resource centre in Bergen, Norway.
The title of my presentation is: Integrating anti-corruption thinking in HMIS:
Improving transparency and promoting equity
This paper sets out to explore the potential of DHIS2 to strengthen anti-corruption interventions—including transparency, accountability, and integrity—in the health sector through data analytics.
Hello everyone, I am Diwash Timilsina, a Public health Graduate from Nepal. I have been working as Senior Healthcare Informatics Officer with a non-profit organization called Nyaya Health Nepal (NHN). I am based in capital city of Nepal with frequent visits to rural places, deploying and supporting EHR.
Title of my presentation is: NepalEHR and DHIS2 integration; Automation in submitting facility based digital data into National HMIS using DHIS2 platform in Nepal
NepalEHR (open-source software) is an integrated electronic health record, built on top of Bahmni. It is customized, developed and maintained by group of technicians and experts from both health and IT sector. The DHIS2 module built in NepalEHR has been successfully generating Nepal’s facility based HMIS data and is able to submit automated report in government’s DHIS2 platform. Use of this module has become a boon to data users and medical recorders, who used to spend lots of their valuable time in collecting, tally, preparing report and data entry. Now, they can simply verify collected data, and submit data, directly into DHIS2. Since data verification is done at the time of finalizing SQL script, no data validation is required to check data quality, reports get generated on exact data provided by the users during clinical checkups. It also prevents human error during tally and data entry in DHIS2.
My name is Doreen Wamiti, and I am excited to present in the Use-case Bazaar session at this year’s conference. I work as a DHIS2 Specialist with the organization called Population Services International (PSI), based in Nairobi, Kenya supporting the Southern African PSI country offices.
My presentation is titled “Critical features of the DHIS2 Usage Statistics app useful for monitoring user engagement with data“. I will elaborate on my presentation, how the DHIS2 Usage Statistics app is being used to understand the extent to which DHIS2 is being used by our country teams in moving data engagement forward within PSI.
My name is Kayla Stankevitz and I’m excited to present on the Standardized DHIS2 Tracker Metadata Package for HIV programs. At FHI 360, I support over 30 countries in collecting, utilizing, and reporting over 70 indicators about HIV service provision. In reality, many countries collect data on paper, periodically review paper forms to tally up indicators. This process comes with many complications, but one important challenge is the inability to use their data in a timely manner to make programmatic decisions.
We developed a standardized DHIS2 tracker metadata package to support not only reporting, but also data use. The metadata package collects data across the continuum of HIV services. We utilize a custom script to transform tracker data into an aggregate data model to enable seamless reporting. Finally, a suite of custom case management dashboards enable service providers to quickly identify clients who need additional follow-up and support.

My name is Sara Hollis and I’m an Epidemiologist at WHO supporting the Go.Data project. Together with colleagues at Polytechnic University of Catalonia, BarcelonaTech we are happy to present updates on the Go.Data-DHIS2 interoperability app at this year’s DHIS2 Annual Conference.
Go.Data is an outbreak investigation tool developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in collaboration with Global Outbreak and Response Network (GOARN) partners and in use in over 60 countries/territories and over 80 institutions worldwide at the national and subnational levels for field-level case investigation and contact tracing.
As in many settings there are existing tools in place for health management information or disease surveillance (including DHIS2 in many countries), we saw the need to enable efficient and secure exchange between Go.Data and DHIS2 to benefit from both tool’s functionalities. We look forward to hearing from countries and solutions using both tools that would like to pilot this app.
