About the Training
This course will provide you with an introduction to DHIS2 principles and terminology, and help you gain an overall understanding of how DHIS2 can be used to collect and analyze aggregate and individual-level data through instructional lectures, short quizzes, and hands-on exercises and assignments.
Data analysis can turn raw data into useful and actionable information. DHIS2 comes equipped with a variety of built-in tools for analytics that can help make sense of your data, such as pivot tables, charts, maps and other visualizations, which can then be presented in customizable dashboards and shared with others in your organization for collaborative analysis and decision making.
Knowing how these analytics tools work, and how to choose the most appropriate tools and visualizations based on the kind of data and needs of the audience, are key factors in managing successful information systems.
