About DHIS2 Logistics Data Integration Academy, Level 2
This DHIS2 Logistics Data Integration training will focus on how we can use DHIS2 to better manage health commodity availability. This involves improved stock management at community and facility level, and the use of service data and logistics data to improve availability and reduce bottlenecks. We will look at options for using DHIS2 to collect logistics data, as well as options for interoperability with other systems.
The audience for this Academy should be familiar with managing stocks, analyzing stock availability, and comparing stock data with health program indicators. Prior experience with DHIS2 is strongly recommended. A team with both logistics management responsibilities and experience and DHIS2 configuration experience would be ideal.

Leisure and Attractions
The Academy venue is very close to local attractions such as the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre, Parliament Building, and the Kamuzu Mausoleum. Outside of the city (a 1.5 to 2-hour drive), Lake Malawi draws visitors from around the world to its clear water and sandy shores.

Malawi has a humid subtropical climate, although temperatures in Lilongwe are milder than other locations at the same latitude due to the city's elevation. May is the dry season in Lilongwe with warm days and cool nights. The average daytime high temperature in May is 23°C and the average low temperature is 13°C.
Local currency is the Malawian Kwacha (MWK). Most shops in Lilongwe will only accept Kwacha, though some hotels and higher-end restaurants may accept USD or other currencies. ATMs and currency exchange agencies are available at the airport and in Lilongwe city center.
