The HISP Asia Hub and the University of Oslo warmly invite you to attend
the first ever

DHIS2 Asia/Pacific Conference

at the Seashells Phu Quoc Hotel & Spa in Phu Quoc, Vietnam
December 7-9, 2022



Get Started



Overview

The DHIS2 Asia/Pacific Conference is the first of its kind and is a place for the Asia/Pacific DHIS2 community to meet and share experiences about DHIS2, learn about the latest developments and innovations, and make connections that can lead to new partnerships and collaborations.

This conference is not the same as our traditional academies, as it focuses on discussion and information sharing rather than learning specific DHIS2 technical skills. It is most comparable to a regional version of the DHIS2 Annual Conference hosted yearly in Oslo.

The following broad themes will be part of this conference:

  • Review of the latest DHIS2 features: Using the latest version of DHIS2, we will provide a background on the latest DHIS2 features and how they can potentially support your DHIS2 implementation.
  • Use case discussions: Using planned and live use-cases from the field, use-cases will be discussed and demonstrated in order to provide an overview of current implementation efforts, successes and challenges. Colleagues from development partners and local Ministries will lead these discussions when relevant.
  • Standards based configuration: We will identify the standards based configurations available for implementations as reference and the resources available for you to standardize them within local contexts.
  • Long term system management and development: Work through the concept of what a DHIS2 core team is, review mechanisms to improve retention, identify your capacity gaps and build training plans and discuss the types of standard operating procedures that lead to sustainable system development.
  • Capitalizing on COVID-19 Investments: Reviewing the accomplishments and investments that have been made as a result of COVID-19, we will discuss how we can leverage these further to improve local systems and engage in ongoing developments.
  • Implementation support: Review the mechanisms that will allow you to follow feature development and discuss potential strategies and challenges for implementing features and standards within your own context.
  • Interoperability: Review the requirements to set up interoperability between DHIS2 and other systems as well as examples of interoperability that have been set up in the field.
  • Security: Review the security features of DHIS2, learn about the DHIS2 security starter toolkit and discuss security needs within local implementations.

The HISP Asia Hub - Your Facilitation Team

The conference will be hosted and facilitated by the HISP Asia Hub, with an emphasis on experience and solution sharing among countries and to promote networking and collaboration among DHIS2 implementers in the region.

The HISP Asia Hub is a partnership of HISP groups within the region that provide coordinated project support to our partners. This partnership includes the following HISP groups:

  • HISP Bangladesh
  • HISP India
  • HISP Indonesia
  • HISP Pakistan
  • HISP Sri Lanka
  • HISP Vietnam

Through this partnership, we work together on providing best-in-class DHIS2 implementation support to our partners in the region by leveraging each other’s strengths through this joint collaboration mechanism.

This conference will include several global and regional DHIS2 experts from the HISP Asia Hub that you will be able to discuss your requirements and implementations with. You will have an opportunity to learn more about the HISP Asia Hub during the conference and how we can support your individual needs.
