    COVID-19 surveillance training guides

    The DHIS2 COVID-19 surveillance training material offers learning aids that are based on the standard COVID-19 surveillance packages. In order to use them effectively, they will need to be populated with specific information from your own COVID-19 implementation (text modification, screenshots, instructions for/from your specific implementation) and are meant as a reference when designing your own training material. They complement the existing documentation (available on the WHO Package Downloads page), which should be used as an additional reference as required. The material currently available can be downloaded as .zip files and includes:

    Data Entry (Web): Includes Trainer’s Guide to conducting the training session, Exercises to accompany the training session, and 1-page Job Aids for end-users to refer to during and after the training. Available for the following packages:

    Android Data Entry: User & Trainer’s Guides for the Case-based Surveillance, Contact Registration & Follow-up, Port of Entry, Events Surveillance and Aggregate Surveillance packages

    Common Settings for Android: User guide for managing common Android settings >> Download .docx file

    COVID-19 vaccine delivery training guides

    The DHIS2 COVID-19 vaccination registration training material offers learning aids that are based on the COVID-19 Electronic Immunization Registry (EIR) package. Similar to the COVID-19 surveillance training material, they will need to be modified to include specific information from your own implementation (including text modifications, screenshots, and instructions for/from your specific implementation based on your local workflow) and are meant as a reference when designing your own training material. The material contains instructions where possible modifications can be made based on common changes to the available configuration. This material complements the existing package documentation (system design and installation guides, available on the WHO Package Downloads page), which should be used as an additional reference as required.

    The material currently available can be downloaded as Microsoft word documents (.docx files) contained together in a single .zip file, and includes the following:

    Web-based Data Entry for the COVID-19 EIR package:

    • Trainer’s guide to conducting the training session
    • Exercises to accompany the training session
    • Series of 1-page job aids for end-users to refer to during and after the training describing the data entry processes discussed in the trainer’s guide and training exercises
