Where is DHIS2 for Education used?
Example Use Cases: Improving Education and Public Health
The Ugandan DHIS2 for Education pilot has been running since mid-2019 in select urban, peri-urban, and rural districts, and is already a big success. The school districts using DHIS2 have not only embraced the system for pre-primary and primary schools--using it to make strategic decisions about school infrastructure improvements and more--but hope to expand into secondary and tertiary education as well.
In October 2019, Uganda launched a country-wide immunization campaign targeting 18 million children. The MoH used DHIS2 for data collection and visualization, and the Ministry of Education shared DHIS2 data on school registration to help determine the scale and target population for the campaign. This was a great example of inter-Ministry collobaration, and of how education and health data can be combined for better outcomes.
