What data elements are used in the Pacific Island countries running DHIS2?


(Claire Brereton) #1

Hi I am doing health research for the Pacific Island countries and want to find out which data elements the various countries collect. I do not need the actual data (not now anyway) and I know that I would have to ask permission from the country governments to get this data.
But can anyone tell me what is collected in the various countries?
THANK YOU Claire

Hi Claire,

Its a bit difficult to pin down the different data elements, but you could explore the WHO packages (https://who.dhis2.net) for further information. In both Solomon Islands and Vanuatu these are being used as reference for the programs there and you can get a better idea of the specific data elements. There are other programs, including tracker, that are not exactly reflected here but this should give you a good start.
