About the configuration packages

WHO LogoThe WHO configuration packages consist of DHIS2 metadata that provide standard configurations of DHIS2 according to WHO recommendations, aligned with a public health curriculum. An introduction to the standard configuration packages and curricula is available on who.int. An existing DHIS2 system is required in order to install these metadata packages. See the DHIS2 Downloads page for guidance on downloading and installing the core DHIS2 software.

The first sections of this page provide general information about the WHO configuration packages. Package-specific metadata files and guides are available in the Downloads and documentation section below.

Types of configuration packages

Three types of configuration packages exists:

  • Tracker configuration packages
  • Complete (aggregate) configuration packages
  • Dashboard configuration packages

Tracker configuration packages include one or more Tracker (case-based) programs, and related metadata such as program indicators and dashboards. The complete (aggregate) configuration packages include data sets for routine aggregate reporting, as well as dashboards. Finally, the dashboard configuration packages include indicators and dashboards only. To the extent possible, Tracker configurations include the necessary program indicators to populate the data sets of the related aggregate configuration packages.

Installation guides and general conventions

Generic installation guides are available for aggregate packages and dashboard packages. These describe the recommended steps for installing these packages, independently of the health program in question. Where relevant, these are complemented with program-specific annexes, which are listed under the corresponding program section below.

For Tracker packages, technical installation guides have been developed specifically for each tracker program. These are listed in the respective program sections.

In the development of these configuration packages, an effort has been made to follow some general design principles and a common naming convention.

Other documentation

In additional to the installation guides, additional documentation is available for each package:

Document Purpose
Design document Explains how the configuration package has been configured.
Availability Mapping Lists the indicators (dashboard packages) or data elements (aggregate packages) included in the package. This is intended to allow comparisons of the standard configuration packages to existing DHIS2 configurations.
Configuration Checklist of indicators and category option groups that should be configured, designed to facilitate configuration of dashboard packages.
Reference Reference list of all metadata included in the configuration package.

Configuration packages: Downloads and documentation

The following sections give an introduction to and overview of the available standard configuration packages by health area/program, along with documentation, links to demo sites and the metadata files themselves.

Cause of Death

Two standard configuration packages are available for reporting of causes of death using ICD-10-SMoL, one configured as a DHIS2 Tracker program, one as DHIS2 Event program (also known as Tracker without registration). ICD-10-SMoL is described further here. An installation guide is available here, which also discusses some of the pros and cons of the Tracker and Event programs.

The Cause of Death design document describes how the Cause of Death program has been designed. The Change log describes changes between each version.

Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI)

Two standard configuration packages are available for immunization: a complete aggregate configuration package that includes data collection and dashboards, and a dashboard configuration package that includes dashboards only.

The Immunization system design document describes how the standard configuration for immunization has been configured in DHIS2. The Change log describes changes between each version. Also see the EPI Annex to the general installation guide.

In addition to the standard configuration packages, a Immunization Analysis DHIS2 app has been developed. This app provides additional analytical outputs, and supplements the standard configuration package. A user manual describing how to install, configure and use the Immunization Analysis app is available here.

Malaria

Malaria configuration packages are available for burden reduction and elimination settings. For each of these, two configuration packages are available: a complete aggregate configuration packages that includes data collection and dashboards, and a dashboard configuration package that includes dashboards only. Two package add-ons are also available to extend these packages for certain contexts: tracking cross-border and mobile and migrant populations, and storing Malaria historical data.

The malaria system design document describes how the standard configuration for malaria has been configured in DHIS2. The Change log describes changes between each version. See also the Malaria Annex to the general installation guide.

Malaria historical data

The "Malaria historical data" package is not intended for prospective data collection, but to allow storing historical data on malaria cases that is not disaggregated by type of confirmation/malaria test. The package is intended to be used as an addition to the complete elimination or burden reduction packages, and therefore does not include the categories and other metadata that is already included in those complete packages.
