Everything you need to know about the DHIS2 Academies

Purpose

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.

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.

Format

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!

  • Level 2 Academies that cover a range of more specialized topics, both a continuation of the three core topics from Level 1 as well as additional themes such as app development, server administration, mobile deployments, implementation strategies, disease surveillance and more.

Whether you are new to DHIS2, 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.
