2019 DHIS 2 Symposium
April 11 - April 12
The annual DHIS 2 Symposium will be held on April 11th and 12th, 2019 at the FHI360 Conference Center in Washington, DC.
DHIS 2 is a web-based, free and open source platform running in more than 60 countries globally. It provides a wide range of possibilities for building integrated yet customized information systems.
The system is developed and managed by the Department of Informatics at the University of Oslo (UiO) and supported by the Health Information Systems Programme (HISP) network. The software is backed by a large and growing implementing community.
Since 2013, DHIS 2 has become the management information system of choice for many international NGOs working across a variety of sectors. The DHIS 2 symposium brings together experienced DHIS 2 users, technical experts, implementers and trainers across the public and NGO sectors in order to share best practices and lessons learned in the implementation and use of DHIS 2.
The symposium is the only DHIS 2 US-based event. It is an opportunity for participants to learn about the development roadmap of the software, meet the development team and learn about UiO initiatives in advancing the DHIS 2 learning environment. The event will showcase use cases that have adopted DHIS 2 in creative ways to solve data management challenges.
