There are many ways to manage metadata. This session covers two DHIS2 features that were designed with the PEPFAR instance of DHIS2 in mind, and also have broad usefulness in other DHIS2 installations.

First, we'll talk about Attribute Option Combos, covering using categories to disaggregate data sets (as opposed to data elements) as well as using category option groups to analyze disaggregated data sets.

Then, we'll cover Data Approvals.  This deep dive has something for everyone, including standard use cases and PEPFAR’s somewhat unusual use case.

Jim and Ben offer to buy an in-person beverage for anyone who wasn't able to learn something from this talk!
