1.6 Importing retrospective surveillance data into DHIS2 Event Capture

The WHO team developed an “Excel importer” app, based on an existing DHIS2 app from HISP Vietnam. VL event data from 2013 to 2015 was imported, and data was then available for analysis of Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) surveillance and control.

A DHIS2 dashboard was implemented for Somalia, with main indicators, and a map representing VL cases from villages of residence as a proxy of the village of infection.
