The BID Learning Network invites you to watch a webinar panel discussion on “DHIS2 Data Quality Application for Data Use Culture.” Global and national stakeholders have acknowledged that routine immunization programs face significant challenges related to the collection, analysis, availability, and use of data for planning, management and improvement of program performance. To address these data challenges, the World Health Organization (WHO) worked with HISP to develop a DHIS2 data quality application suitable for countries. In this webinar, learn from speakers about what are data quality apps, how they work, who uses apps, why they are important, how they address data use issues, and how to install the apps. Speakers also cover what countries qualify for data quality apps and what procedures are needed to use the DHIS2 apps. The presenter will also share insights about DHIS2 and share lesson learned from countries using DHIS2 data quality apps.

This webinar discussion will be of interest to data management specialists, EPI managers, health management information system (HMIS) specialists, digital health solution implementers, and other health care specialists committed to improving data collection, quality, and use across health systems.
