Everything you need to know about the DHIS 2 Academies

Purpose

The DHIS 2 Academies aim to build a community of DHIS 2 users and experts in the different regions and facilitate sharing of experiences on DHIS 2 deployments and strategies for national-scale HIS implementations.

DHIS 2 experts will be available to guide you on practical work with your DHIS 2 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 other 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 DHIS 2 users and experts to successfully set up, design and maintain DHIS 2 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.

Language

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.

New Format

The structure and material have gone through a complete makeover. We are now offering:

  • One Online Academy to the Fundamentals of DHIS 2;
    This Academy will be available in 2017 and online only.
  • 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 in 2017.

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.

Check out the prerequisites for: Online Academy on DHIS 2 Fundamentals, the DHIS 2 Information Use Academy, the DHIS 2 Tracker Academy, the DHIS 2 Design & Customization and the DHIS 2 Conference.

We are hosting up to 3 Level 1 Academies in each region: Eastern & Southern Africa, Western & Central Africa, Asia, Northern and Latin-America.

We are also proud to announce that the Level 1 Academies are hosted by our regional partners who are all DHIS 2 experts with vast regional implementation experience.
