As the Lusophone partner of the UiO, Saudigitus overall goal is to support portuguese speaking countries to strengthen their health systems and the capacity to govern their Health Information Systems in a sustainable way. This support is focused on promoting DHIS2 platform, as a global public good to the Lusophone community, the innovations and current developments of DHIS2 platform.

For that we offer:

DHIS2 Academies and custom trainings

DHIS2 Academies aim to strengthen national and regional capacity to successfully set up, design and maintain, and use DHIS2 based systems. Through an intensive training combining theoretical and practical sessions, participants are trained to become a DHIS2 expert ready to support their organisation’s data collection, analysis, and reporting needs using DHIS2.

This capacity building is addressed both from a technical perspective, providing a better understanding of the available DHIS2 tools and their best practices, as well as from the health management side through sessions on data quality and information use.

The following are activities offered since the first half of 2014 with their corresponding schedules:
