Use cases outside of the health sector

Hi DHIS2 Community,

Does anyone have examples of use-cases outside of the health sector?

Thank you!

Implementation of Results M&E framework for environment sub-sectors in Rwanda. Project scope included Environment and climate change, Geology and Mining, Lands and Water resource management, Meteorology, and funds for green growth.

Part of the work has also been to integrate DHIS2 with existing systems through an openHIE framework.

We are using the system in a One Health approach for Ministry of Agriculture/Livestock/Animal Husbandry and Ministry of Health (Zoonotic disease implementation)

Hi @Terence_Scott
Can you please share some detail on the use case you are using in agricultural sector.
What i mean is what data elements and at what administrative level are u using dhis2 in agricultural sector. Do u visualize the collected it? If so what tools were used.
Thank you

So curious to see this. Any demo site that we can have a look? @Eric_Munyambabazi

Hi @Frehiwot

We are using the system as a One Health system for Rabies data collection and surveillance. The agricultural sector uses the information to track animal rabies cases, vaccinations and deaths, while the human sector tracks the human deaths, bite incidents, prophylaxis, etc.

We use Tracker (event and enrollment) to map cases and track individuals as well as aggregated data. We work primarily at the national level, but also have Integrated Bite Case Management programmes that track individual humans and animals at the community-level.

For data sharing, we do publish some of the graphs and maps on our website (when governments have provided us with permissions to share the data) and it can be viewed here:
https://rabiesalliance.org/networks/paracon/bulletin

We also have a publication available that describes some of the data elements and indicators that are used, including standardization of these DEs with the WHO Global Health Observatory.
See: “Scott et al 2017 Addressing the disconnect between the estimated, reported and true rabies data: the development of a regional African rabies bulletin”

Since the publication, we have continued to further develop the system and included many other features, but the publication should at least provide a good overview of what we are using DHIS2 for.

I hope this helps to clarify how we use DHIS2.

Interesting use-case, there is actually a thin-line between health and agriculture. In there was a use-case in Uganda on disease surveillance for both human and Zonotic outbreaks using DHIS2 tracker capture.

Hi everybody,
I wanted to share a piece of our work that may help you with your use cases!
WHO has been working on a application to extract data from Google Earth Engine and bring it into DHIS2 with a view to monitor climate related disease risks!
The application extracts values from any data set provided through Google Earth Engine for a given subset of DHIS2 OUs (using their coordinates), a certain period and datasets/variables mapping and injects them into a DHIS2 data set. It also allows to easily integrate national observations (if available).

The application was developed by EyeSeeTea and it is available for free at the following repo:

Hoping it will help you out with your projects!
