The DHIS2 Annual Conference is our biggest yearly event, and provides an opportunity for the global DHIS2 community — a diverse group including implementers, developers, ministry representatives, technical partners, donors, and other DHIS2 experts from around the world — to meet and share experiences with DHIS2, learn about the latest developments and innovations, and make connections that can lead to new partnerships and collaborations.

After two years of virtual gatherings, we are excited to announce the DHIS2 Annual Conference 2022 scheduled to take place in-person from 20 to 23 June at the University of Oslo, Norway. An online component will also allow for virtual participation in some conference sessions for those who are unable to travel to Oslo. The hybrid format enables in-person participation (physical presence) as well as remote participation.
