DHIS2 and the Global COVID-19 Response
A recording of this session is available on YouTube.

DHIS2 has been catalyzed in more than 40 countries to provide the informational backbone to COVID-19 surveillance, response and national vaccine delivery plans. The WHO shares its strategy for supporting the scale-up of digital solutions to support efficient, equitable delivery of COVID-19 vaccines.

Representatives from Sierra Leone and Ethiopia share implementation lessons for integrating COVID-19 surveillance and vaccine delivery into the national DHIS2 platform and how strengthening the system in response to the pandemic will further enhance routine surveillance and immunization activities for a broad range of vaccine preventable diseases.

Integrated DHIS2 platform for routine & emergency disease surveillance
View a recording of this session on YouTube

This session explores innovation and expansion of the DHIS2 platform in various country contexts to support emergency surveillance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many countries have used DHIS2 as a national disease surveillance system for both IDSR and case-based surveillance of VPDs and other notifiable diseases. The pandemic created sweeping demand for innovative use of DHIS2 functionality and customization in emergency settings alongside national demand for solutions to be developed & sustained within the national HIS architecture.

In Bangladesh, DHIS2 has been used to capture more than 6 million COVID-19 tests. As part of the national architecture an API connects DHIS2 with other systems and apps, enabling COVID-19 certificates and QR code generation, SMS alerts and integrated with SHUROKHA app to combine vaccination data into the system. You can find more on Bangladesh's presentationon the Community of Practice here.

In Indonesia, innovative approaches have been taken to use and train users on DHIS2 for contact tracing as part of response efforts. You can find more on Syefira Salsabila's presentation on the Community of Practice here.

Finally, South Sudan shares challenges faced establishing a unified data management platform for COVID-19 response and how lessons learned during the pandemic are being used to strengthen the underlying health information system. You can find more on Talya Shragai's presentation on the Community of Practice here.

Event-based surveillance & rumor monitoring
Watch a recording of this session on YouTube

Learn how DHIS2 has been designed and deployed for event-based surveillance and rumor monitoring. Africa CDC uses DHIS2 as a regional platform to capture, analyze and disseminate information about public health events reporting from formal and non-formal sources across Africa Union member states. 

In Uganda, the DHIS2 platform has been used for event-based surveillance as part of the overall electronic case-based surveillance platform (eCBDS). Integration with the SMS platform 6767 allows reporting and alerts of events from the community into DHIS2, analysis, investigation and feedback to the community about the event. In Vietnam, a chatbot integrated with DHIS2 captures event-based surveillance data from private health care providers and pharmacists, feeding provincial CDC dashboards in DHIS2 for analysis. JHU's Breakthrough ACTION Project designed and disseminated a DHIS2 metadata package to combat misinformation through systematic, real-time monitoring of rumors. You can find more on JHU's presentation here and on PSI work in Vietnam here.

DHIS2 and the Health Information Ecosystem
View a recording of this session on YouTube

Many countries use DHIS2 as a significant component of the overall health information ecosystem, expanding their use of DHIS2 across HMIS and numerous health programs, as well as connecting with various additional technologies to create a comprehensive infrastructure. This session will take a look at how we approach the concept of interoperability and integration, and discuss how DHIS2 as a platform is often situated within the broader health information system paradigm.

DHIS2 for Education (Part 1)
Join the live Zoom session here.

Read more on Pamod Amarakoon's presentation on the DHIS2 Community of Practice here.

SDG 4 on Quality Education calls for inclusive and equitable education that promotes lifelong learning opportunities for all. This can't be achieved without the use of quality data to guide decisions that can lead to the improvement of both equitable access to education as well as being able to track improvements in learning outcomes.

DHIS2 for Education extends the DHIS2 software platform from the health sector to education, for the collection, analysis, visualisation and use of individual and aggregate data from institutions of learning. It takes advantage of decades of experience with national-level Health Management Information Systems (HMIS), offering a stable, scalable and customisable Education Management Information System (EMIS) solution; a solution backed by international donor organisations as a public good.

Join us to discover how the DHIS2 community is part of a new shift, changing the landscape of improved data for improved decision-making for education stakeholders across the globe.

HIV: tracker innovations and adaptations for longitudinal analysis
The recording is available here.

The follow up- and the analysis of HIV longitudinal data can be burdensome and complex, but what if you can add a twist to existing tools to make the job somehow easier? or what if you recycle a package and create a tailored tracker that can help you with the management of your cohort?

In this session we will bring forward four examples of innovative and creative implementations of DHIS2, and how these have impacted the respective HIV programmes. 

CoP thread for the session.

Use of DHIS2 data in research
Join the live Zoom session here.

This session will explore various alternative ways of using data from DHIS2. Read more on Caitlin Augustin's presentation here and Yangzi Sherpa's presentation here on the Community of Practice discussion.

Every Newborn Birth Indicators Research Tracking in Hospitals (EN-BIRTH) study
Background: Globally each year, an estimated 2.4 million newborns die in the first 28 days of life - 47% of under five year old deaths. Additionally, more than two million babies are stillborn.  Although most of these deaths are preventable, 99% occur in low & middle income countries (LMICs) with the least data on coverage and quality of care around the time of birth the “inverse data law”
The Every Newborn Action Plan (ENAP) [5, 6] endorsed by the World Health Assembly in 2014 committed to end preventable newborn deaths and stillbirths. Sustainable Development Goal 3 includes the first ever global target for neonatal mortality reduction. To attain universal health coverage countries need to scale up evidence-based interventions for newborn health.
Timely and high-quality data on outcomes and coverage of care are crucial. The majority of comparable data for newborn health indicators are currently collected through population-based surveys (e.g. DHS, MICS). Data from routine health management information systems (HMIS) including DHIS2 is increasingly available for the 80% of global births now occurring in health facilities.  Aggregated data from routine hospital registers is the typical data source for HMIS.
 A multi-partner measurement improvement roadmap [11] was developed for 2015–2020 to improve the ENAP core indicator definitions, to test their measurement validity and inform feasibility of measurement. The linked Every Newborn - Birth Indicators Research Tracking in Hospitals (EN-BIRTH) study was collaborative research by London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, icddr,b Bangladesh, Golden Community Nepal and Ifakara Health Institute Tanzania and funded by Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF).
Aim: To test validity of measurement of newborn and maternal indicator measurement.  
Objectives: 1) Assess validity of numerator measurement 2) Assess validity of denominator measurement 3) Evaluate content and quality of care 4) Assess barriers and enablers to routine register measurement
Methods: Mixed methods observational study in five public hospitals providing comprehensive emergency obstetric and newborn care hospitals in three high-burden mortality countries: Tanzania, Bangladesh, and Nepal. Direct clinical observation of care and interventions was used as the gold standard to compare against data from routine facility registers and women’s survey report.  Qualitative interviews were conducted with health workers and research data collectors.
The multi-country EN-BIRTH team observed 23,471 births and 840 kangaroo mother care (KMC) mother baby pairs, in addition to collecting information on 1015 admissions for neonatal infection.
Results: The presentation will report selected findings from the EN-BIRTH analyses focusing on accuracy of routine register data elements aggregated for indicator measurement in health information systems e.g. DHIS2.  
Indicators discussed will include: newborn and maternal indicator measurement around the time of birth including: uterotonics to prevent postpartum haemorrhage, neonatal resuscitation (bag-mask-ventilation), birth weight, early initiation of breastfeeding, kangaroo mother care etc.   
Findings will be shared regarding barriers and enablers and what needs to be done to improve data quality on the frontline in health facilities.
Plans for EN-BIRTH phase 2 feasibility and implementation research will be shared aiming to assess whether the validated newborn indicators are feasible to implement in HMIS as the next step to promote broad uptake in (LMIC).
Further details about the EN-BIRTH study including publications can be found at https://www.lshtm.ac.uk/research/centres/march-centre/every-newborn-birth

DHIS2 is the Platform: enabling innovation by designing for extensibility
Watch the recording of the session here.

The term "platform" is used a lot when talking about DHIS2 - we have the Platform product stream, the Platform development team, and the Application Platform. DHIS2 is also referred to as a platform for many health initiatives around the world. All of these are accurate, but they are also incomplete - DHIS2 as a whole is designed as a platform for extension and adaptation. Join us as we explore the ways the core development team at the University of Oslo is embedding extensibility and platform thinking into every part of DHIS2, and in particular hear the latest updates about our Application Platform, Android SDK, and developer community initiatives.

Design for Data Use plenary (Overview of Designing for Data Use concept around the data ecosystem)
Watch a recording of this session on YouTube

Using data is a necessary but not sufficient condition for more optimal use of data. To improve data use for decision making and/or action taking, we need to look at the complete process of how, for whom and in what way the system is designed and maintained. ‘Designing for use’ is the concept used to describe the approach adopted within DHIS2.

Dr Chatterji,the Director a.i. of the Department of Data and Analytics, WHO, will open the session looking at strengthening health information systems through data use to measure impact. Prof Kristin Braa, Prof Jørn Braa, Dr Elaine Byrne and Dr Prosper Behumbiize will explore the 'Designing for Data Use' concept with examples from Uganda of putting this into practice. The session will close with a short overview by Paul Biondich a pediatrician and a community leader of the Data Use Community with a focus on point of care delivery data use.

DHIS2 Design Lab
Join the live Zoom session here.

Read more on Magnus Li's presentation on the DHIS2 Community of Practice here.


In the DHIS2 Design Lab, we explore how we can support and promote user-oriented design and innovation within the DHIS2 ecosystem. With ‘user-oriented design and innovation’, we refer to efforts particularly aimed at building usable and relevant tools that are valuable to the end-users’ (e.g., health workers) practices and needs.
In our session, we will talk a bit about what we do, some of our key findings from the past, and our plans for the future. Particularly, we will look at how three conditions affect the potential for user-oriented design and innovation in DHIS2 implementation projects: 1) affordable design flexibility, 2) implementation-level design practices, and 3) project configuration. Related to the three conditions, we will discuss their implications and how we aim to address them in our ongoing projects.

We are very interested in getting in touch with you if you have experience (positive or negative) with user-oriented design and innovation, DHIS2 web-app development, or the use of agile methods during DHIS2 implementation. If you are interested in sharing your experiences, please submit your email here, and we’ll get in touch with you for a chat!

Metadata Management with Attribute Option Combos and Approvals
See the recording of the session here and the questions and answers from the session here.

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!
