What is the DHIS2 Annual Conference?
Now in its 7th year, our unique Oslo-based Experts Academy is back with a new name: The DHIS2 Annual Conference. We changed the name this year to reflect the format of the event and the emphasis on learning from the Community.
Let’s take a look back at last year’s key figures:
Sessions in 5 days
The 2019 DHIS2 Annual Conference is an opportunity for the Community to meet and share experiences on DHIS2 implementations. The conference will bring together implementers, developers, ministry representatives, technical partners, and donors from around the world.
Participants will learn from exciting DHIS2 innovations through 4 days of use cases, thematic presentations, and live demos from the developers.
Through a mix of invited key speakers, community-driven presentations from the open call for abstracts, and social events, there will be ample opportunities to network with peers and experienced DHIS2 implementers.
New this year is the Apps Competition where community developers can promote their innovations.

- Using DHIS2 at point of care
We will carefully review all submitted abstracts. As in previous years, we are anticipating a high number of abstracts… more information
Our Apps Competition
In recent years, an increasing number of custom applications in DHIS2 have emerged.
These apps are almost always in response to features and functionalities required by a specific user that generic DHIS2 applications do not adequately cover. The development of custom applications ultimately produces a better product to the end user and strengthens the DHIS2 platform ecosystem in general.
We want to shine a light on all of the innovation and incredible app development that is happening in DHIS2. That is why we are holding our first DHIS2 app competition at this year’s DHIS2 Annual Conference.
We invite DHIS2 developers from around the world to submit their best work. Three finalists will be selected. A representative from each of the finalists will be flown to Oslo for the Conference in June to present their app in person and… more information
