The District Health Information Software (DHIS) is used in more than 40 countries around the world. DHIS 2 is a tool for collection, validation, analysis, and presentation of aggregate and patient-based statistical data, tailored (but not limited) to integrated health information management activities. It is a tool with an open meta-data model and a flexible user interface that allows the user to design the contents of a specific information system without the need for programming. DHIS2 and upwards is a modular web-based software package built with free and open source Java frameworks.
Health data and information is considered to be under-documented due to improper basic health and demographic record-keeping. IRES have organized this training that aims at building the capacity of researchers, health record managers and practitioners to monitor, manage and maintain demographic data and health information in a much more efficient and accurate way than using papers. This training course on Installation, Use and Maintenance of DHIS 2, will equip the participants with necessary skills and knowledge on how to report, analyze and disseminate data for all health programs.
