Everything you need to know about the DHIS2 Academies
The DHIS2 Academies aim to build a community of DHIS2 users and experts in the different regions and facilitate sharing of experiences on DHIS2 deployments and strategies for national-scale HIS implementations.
DHIS2 experts will be available to guide you on practical work with your DHIS2 databases, whether it is in an initial or more advanced phase, e.g. help designing data sets and collection tools, or indicators and reporting outputs (charts, dashboards, maps, pivot tables etc.).
Who is attending
Everyone with a strong interest in DHIS 2! Whether you are a DHIS 2 implementer with over 5 years' experience, a system administrator, part of a management team or M&E officer and aim to achieve agreed learning objectives.
Our Academies bring together representatives from Ministries of Health, Non-Governmental Organisations, International Organisations and Consultants from all countries, with the aim to build a community of DHIS2 users and experts to successfully set up, design and maintain DHIS2 systems. Please check out the prerequisites for each Academy.
Each Academy has a ceiling on the maximum number of participants to ensure good quality training. Depending on the interest, we may put in place quotas on participants per country.
Our Academies are conducted in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish depending on the host country official language. The training curriculum remains the same across the regions.
The structure and material have gone through a complete makeover. We are now offering:
- One Online Academy to the Fundamentals of DHIS2;
This Academy is now available (online only). Enroll now!
- Three different Level 1 Academies covering the main features of the software;
- The DHIS 2 Conference;
- A new structure for the Level 2 Academies which will be published very soon.
Whether you are new to DHIS 2, have a limited experience with the software or have previously attended an Academy, these new Level 1 Academies will provide interesting insights and the opportunity to go into more advanced features with more time for in-depth discussions than in any of the previous Level 2 Academies.
We are hosting up to 3 Level 1 Academies in each region: Eastern & Southern Africa, Western & Central Africa, Asia, Northern and Latin-America.
Our Regional Partners
We are also proud to announce that the Level 1 Academies are hosted by our regional partners who are all DHIS2 experts with vast regional implementation experience.
