    Overview of the DHIS2 Academy Catalog

    This course catalog includes a short description of all of the DHIS2 Academy courses that are currently maintained by the HISP Centre at the University of Oslo. These include:

    • Self-paced online courses, which are available for enrollment at any time, free of charge, on the DHIS2 Online Academy website.
    • Instructor-led courses, which are primarily in-person and fee-based, and are conducted on a periodic basis by the HISP Centre and/or the groups in the global HISP network.

    The listings below indicate whether each course is self-paced or instructor-led, and include links to either the Online Academy for registration in self-paced courses, or our Academy schedule where upcoming instructor-led Academies are listed. Several of our courses are also available in translation — please see the Online Academy and Academy schedule page for our current offerings. In addition, you can explore our Academy Archive page for links to course material from previous editions of our instructor-led Academy courses.

    Our courses are organized in thematic categories based on their primary area of focus: DHIS2 Use, DHIS2 Configuration, Architecture & Extensions, and Domain & Program Management, plus special categories for the Introduction to DHIS2 course and DHIS2 Conferences. These are explained in more detail in their corresponding sections below. As of 2024, these categories replace our previous model of grouping Academies by level 1 and 2.

    If you are unsure of which courses are right for your, you can explore our recommended capacity building plans for key DHIS2 roles on our Learning Paths page.

    DHIS2 Configuration

    Configuration courses mainly focus on the setup, customization and/or maintenance of DHIS2. These courses also discuss the effect that configuration has on the utilization or implementation of specific features, and often require prior knowledge on how features that are being configured function in practice. As a result, these courses are often a hybrid of demonstrating how to perform specific maintenance operations in DHIS2 and discussing the best practices related to their implementation.

    Configuration courses focus on utilizing the maintenance application in DHIS2 to perform various system administration tasks. Extensions, scripts, apps or other tools that can be used to configure DHIS2 are not within the scope of the courses included in this category — some of these topics are covered by courses in the Architecture & Extensions category.

    Optimizing Data Access & Outputs

    Instructor-led, in-person course

    Getting good data analysis outputs from your DHIS2 system means starting with a good system design. DHIS2 is by nature a generic platform that can be customized based on the demands and components of a given program or organization. Creating and maintaining a high-quality DHIS2 instance that can provide useful outputs for data analysis and use requires mastering the components of system design, customization, administration and maintenance of metadata, applications to support the visualization of data, and other built-in and supplemental tools. This Academy builds on the Aggregate Customization Fundamentals course to provide you with the skills you need to successfully design, configure, and maintain your DHIS2 system for aggregate data collection, validation and analysis. Design of DHIS2 Tracker systems is covered in the Tracker Configuration Fundamentals Academy.

    Domain & Program Management

    In this category we focus on two connected areas. Within domain management, the application of specific workflows, tools, and best practices are used to illustrate how DHIS2 can function as an information system within particular domains or sectors. These courses focus on presenting concepts related to both configuration and utilization within these specific domains.

    Within program management, courses shift their focus to the long term sustainability of DHIS2 systems. Instead of discussing specific principles related to the usage or configuration of DHIS2, these courses focus on strategic aspects, including the planning, budgeting, scaling up and evaluation of DHIS2 implementations. These courses do not demand an in-depth understanding of DHIS2 and are designed for individuals in roles capable of influencing the long-term vision and planning of a DHIS2 implementation within their country or organization.

    Planning & Budgeting DHIS2 Implementations

    Self-paced online course

    The countrywide rollout of DHIS2 is a task that requires a lot of resources, highly skilled personnel, and stakeholder engagement, with a number of different elements that must be planned and budgeted for. To help make this process easier, we have combined our knowledge gained from the experience of implementing DHIS2 in many countries and contexts to provide a series of critical topics, recommendations, lessons learned, and best practices together in one place.

    Themes of this Academy include:

    • Identifying the main DHIS2 features that support its use as an HMIS.
    • Distinguishing the roles and responsibilities of the DHIS2 teams that guarantee the system’s governance, sustainability, and relevance.
