About DHIS2 Tracker Implementation Management Academy, Level 2
This 6-day Academy covers how to prepare and plan for your Tracker projects. This is not a technical "how to" Academy on configuring a Tracker instance. Rather this is targeted toward project and program managers, tech leads and architects, HMIS managers, DHIS2 development partners, and others with broad responsibility for overseeing or sustaining a Tracker project.
Some topics that will be covered include internal readiness assessments, navigating legislation and policy concerns, strategies for capacity building and scaling, considerations for setting up your national core team, and building a long-term implementation plan. The goal for the academy is for each participant to leave with a framework for how to assess and plan their Tracker project.
- Review Tracker Features and Use Cases
- Designing Implementations for Analytics Outputs
- Strategies for Capacity Building
- Frameworks for Outlining Implementation Requirements
- Review of Security Considerations

DHIS2 Facilitators for the Tracker Implementation Management Academy include key members of the Tracker team from University of Oslo, as well as local Tracker implementation experts from our regional HISP partners and the Ghana Health Service.
