BAO Systems and the University of Oslo are excited to welcome you to the 4th annual DHIS 2 Symposium! 

2018 Symposium Themes: 

The global digital health space is moving at a rapid pace, making exponential gains within the last few years.  It’s hard to imagine that after only 10 years of development, DHIS 2 is being implemented in 87 countries and Indian states, with 53 operating at national scale.  This kinetic global expansion of DHIS 2 has led to exciting collaborations and partnerships that are working to improve LMIC health systems.  

And yet we know that there is still work to be done to improve these systems.  

In our 4th DHIS 2 Symposium, we’ll look closely at how international partnerships between NGOs and governments are supporting national systems strengthening through technical support that ultimately improves the use of DHIS 2 and how this work is bringing us closer to harmonized data.

But beyond national systems, there is still exciting innovation happening all around us.  We’ll spend time looking at Android mobile applications and hear from the UiO about efforts to overhaul and re-develop the applications.  Biometrics are making concrete gains in development work and we’ll hear how they can be incorporated into DHIS 2.

Other topics to be explored include:  

  • What work is being done around using DHIS 2 for the Sustainable Development Goals and how can we move that work forward?

  • How is data used in concrete ways to drive decision-making, course-correction and drive impact of your programs?

  • How is integration with other systems like LMIS and EMRs improving national systems?

Amanda works for the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) as a Monitoring Officer in the Research & Evaluation division. She has worked extensively in digital health and GIS – from mobile data collection to app creation, SMS surveys and spatial analysis – in an effort to collect real-time, high quality data to inform program decisions. In her view, the tools and data are often times there, which lay the foundation for and creates the potential for adaptive management, but the challenge seems to be in bridging the gap between data collection and data use – that is, using actionable data to inform real action.
