DHIS 2 Tracker 2.0 Training

Cambridge, UK

Date: Sep10

Location: Cambridge, UK

Event Overview

Join us September 10-12 for a two-day DHIS 2 Tracker training session in Cambridge. Some basic familiarity with DHIS 2 would be useful but not essential.

Target Audience:

  • Already using DHIS 2 but now exploring the option of capturing individual data.

  • Working with an older version of DHIS 2 Tracker and evaluating new Tracker functionalities.

  • No exposure to DHIS 2 Tracker but considering how it might be useful as a data/case management tool.

This three-day training will focus on DHIS 2 Tracker functionalities with particular attention given to new features from version 2.30. The Tracker data model supports capturing longitudinal individual data and has been substantially refactored in recent versions for both the web and Android mobile apps.

To get the most out of this course, some prior exposure to DHIS 2 would be beneficial. However, there will be an optional one-day introductory course (September 10, 2018) for those requiring a refresher or without any DHIS 2 experience. At the end of this training, participants will have hands-on experience of all features listed in the “topics” tab of this page.

We look forward to seeing you there!

About DHIS 2 Tracker

The DHIS 2 Tracker is an extension of the DHIS 2 platform and supports management, data collection, and analysis of transactional or disaggregated data. The Tracker shares the same design concepts as the overall DHIS 2 – a combination of a generic data model and flexible metadata configuration through the user interface that allows for rapid customization to meet a wide range of use cases.
