A Health Management information system (HMIS), is a system based on routinely collected health data that are aggregated, analyzed, presented and used by health workers, managers, planners, policy makers and other stakeholders to make informed decisions. The HMIS core concepts modules aims to equip the workforce of the national health information system of the Ministry of Health of Ethiopia and higher education with knowledge and skills necessary to implement the national health information system. These include to understand the link between the health system and the health information system, select appropriate data sources for data collection and reporting, follow established data recording and reporting procedures, adhere to data management standards, and calculate and report on HMIS indicators. It also aims to maintain data quality standards, use data quality assessment techniques, interpret, present, and communicate data for use in decision making, create a demand for data and foster a culture of information use, and promote good governance of the HMIS.


District Health Information Software (DHIS2) is a digital health management information system (HMIS) for the collection and storage, validation, analysis, and presentation of routine data and events for health information management activities.

In 2017, Ethiopia selected DHIS2 as its national electronic HMIS platform, and in the intervening years it has replaced multiple legacy systems with a national-scale rollout of DHIS2. DHIS2 is currently deployed in over 4,000 facilities (woredas, hospitals, and health centers) with the goal that the software will be used nationwide so that quality data can be used at all levels for necessary decision making.

This training is designed to equip you with the basic skill that will be required to implement DHIS2. Upon successful completion, you will be awarded a certificate.
