    About the configuration packages

    The WHO configuration packages consist of DHIS2 metadata that provide standard configurations of DHIS2 according to WHO recommendations, aligned with a public health curriculum. An introduction to the standard configuration packages and curricula is available on who.int. An existing DHIS2 system is required in order to install these metadata packages. See the DHIS2 Downloads page for guidance on downloading and installing the core DHIS2 software.

    The first sections of this page provide general information about the WHO configuration packages. Package-specific metadata files and guides are available by health program below.

    Types of configuration packages

    Three types of configuration packages exists: Tracker, Complete (aggregate) and Dashboard configuration packages

    To the extent possible, Tracker configurations include the necessary program indicators to populate the data sets of the related aggregate configuration packages.

    Tracker configuration packages

    Tracker configuration packages include one or more Tracker (case-based) programs, and related metadata such as program indicators and dashboards.

    Complete (aggregate) configuration packages

    The complete (aggregate) configuration packages include data sets for routine aggregate reporting, as well as dashboards.

    Dashboard configuration packages

    The dashboard configuration packages include indicators and dashboards only.

    Installation guides and general conventions

    Generic installation guides are available for aggregate packages and dashboard packages. These describe the recommended steps for installing these packages, independently of the health program in question. Where relevant, these are complemented with program-specific annexes, which are listed under the corresponding program section below.

    For Tracker packages, technical installation guides have been developed specifically for each tracker program. These are listed in the respective program sections.

    In the development of these configuration packages, an effort has been made to follow some general design principles and a common naming convention.

    Other documentation

    In additional to the installation guides, additional documentation is available for each package:

    • Design document: Explains how the configuration package has been configured
    • Availability Mapping: Lists the indicators (dashboard packages) or data elements (aggregate packages) included in the package. This is intended to allow comparisons of the standard configuration packages to existing DHIS2 configurations
    • Configuration: Checklist of indicators and category option groups that should be configured, designed to facilitate configuration of dashboard packages
    • Reference: Reference list of all metadata included in the configuration package

    Cause of Death

    Two standard configuration packages are available for reporting of causes of death using ICD-10-SMoL, one configured as a DHIS2 Tracker program, one as DHIS2 Event program (also known as Tracker without registration). ICD-10-SMoL is described further here. An installation guide is available here, which also discusses some of the pros and cons of the Tracker and Event programs.

    The Cause of Death design document describes how the Cause of Death program has been designed. The Change log describes changes between each version.

    Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI)

    Two standard configuration packages are available for immunization: a complete aggregate configuration package that includes data collection and dashboards, and a dashboard configuration package that includes dashboards only. In addition, a AEFI (Adverse Events Following Immunization) Tracker package is available.

    The Immunization system design document describes how the standard configuration for immunization has been configured in DHIS2. The Change log describes changes between each version. Also see the EPI Annex to the general installation guide.

    In addition to the standard configuration packages, a Immunization Analysis DHIS2 app has been developed. This app provides additional analytical outputs, and supplements the standard configuration package. A user manual describing how to install, configure and use the Immunization Analysis app is available here.
