We work closely with PSI’s country teams so they feel empowered to use, manage, and analyze their data using DHIS2. During our implementations, in-country DHIS2 stars are identified and PSI provides coaching and assistance to empower them to integrate data for decision making into their every day program management.
We also identify local technical leads who can support DHIS2 maintenance and adapt the system to meet their teams’ needs. For example, we’re implementing DHIS2 in Zimbabwe. Our team is working closely with our “local star” there, and he’s learning how to build and do the configuration himself. It’s exciting to see how DHIS2 is really owned by PSI Zimbabwe—the data in DHIS2 is theirs and they’re using it. This is the kind of goal we aspire to.
