The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

DHIS2 is quickly becoming the information system of choice for health programs and professionals in developing regions. The free software provides an all-in-one solution for monitoring health service inputs and outcomes. In a single customizable platform, DHIS2 provides data storage, data visualization and mapping capabilities, as well as mobile phone data collection modules and reporting engines, all designed to enable rapid data-driven decisions.

This Akros DHIS2 training session will equip students with a fundamental understanding of DHIS2 core functionalities and practical examples. DHIS2 implementation experts from Akros will interweave hands-on learning exercises with recent use cases of the software for results monitoring, mobile-to-web surveillance, and national health information systems.

The emphasis for this crash course will be on data entry, pivot tables, and visualization modules. A post-conference follow-up course on Friday will delve deeper into DHIS2 system architecture, GIS, data validation, and data analysis.
