Description

Join Us!

The annual DHIS 2 Symposium will be held on March 22nd and 23rd, 2018 at the FHI360 Conference Center in Washington, DC.


What is the DHIS 2 Symposium?

DHIS 2 is a web-based, free and open source platform running in more than 60 countries globally. It provides a wide range of possibilities for building integrated yet customized information systems.

The system is developed and managed by the Department of Informatics at the University of Oslo (UiO) and supported by the Health Information Systems Programme (HISP) network. The software is backed by a large and growing implementing community.

Since 2013, DHIS 2 has become the management information system of choice for many international NGOs working across a variety of sectors. The DHIS 2 symposium brings together experienced DHIS 2 users, technical experts, implementers and trainers across the public and NGO sectors in order to share best practices and lessons learned in the implementation and use of DHIS 2.

The symposium is the only DHIS 2 US-based event. It is an opportunity for participants to learn about the development roadmap of the software, meet the development team and learn about UiO initiatives in advancing the DHIS 2 learning environment. The event will showcase use cases that have adopted DHIS 2 in creative ways to solve data management challenges.


2018 Symposium Themes

The 2018 symposium themes will be published soon. In previous years, we have explored multi-system landscapes and how system alignment and interoperability can reduce data duplication, ensure data quality and data management efficiency. We have also looked at efforts to drive data usage through innovative apps, analytics or business intelligence tools. The 2017 Symposium had 200+ participants from over 100 different organizations.


Who should attend?

We encourage international development M&E specialists, project and program managers, IT staff, consultants and others who are interested in learning more about DHIS 2 implementation to attend.

The two-day event will provide an opportunity for participants to meet users, implementers, and developers and learn about how DHIS 2 could be utilized to support their specific use case. Participants will have first-level access to the University of Oslo development team to provide feedback and requests for new features.

If you attended the symposium in previous years, you should consider attending again to learn about the latest developments in the community, the software, and resources available to the community.
