About DHIS2 Analytics Tools Academy, Level 1

Data analysis can turn raw data into useful and actionable information. DHIS2 comes equipped with a variety of built-in tools for analytics that can help make sense of your data, such as pivot tables, charts, maps and other visualizations, which can then be presented in customizable dashboards and shared with others in your organization for collaborative analysis and decision making.

Knowing how these analytics tools work, and how to choose the most appropriate tools and visualizations based on the kind of data and needs of the audience, are key factors in managing successful information systems.

The Level 1 DHIS2 Analytics Tools Academy builds upon the introduction to data analysis from the DHIS2 Fundamentals course to provide you with the skills you need to use DHIS2 effectively for data analysis.

By successfully completing this Level 1 Academy you will:

  • Gain an understanding of data tools in DHIS2, and create your own charts, tables, maps, and dashboards
  • Learn best practices for data analysis, and how to produce relevant information in DHIS2
  • Explore real-world examples of using data to make decisions
  • Get an introduction to data quality tools within DHIS2
*Prerequisite: Participation in this course requires prior completion of DHIS2 Fundamentals, or equivalent experience with DHIS2.
