3 West Africa Regional Systems and DHIS2

The West African Health Organization (WAHO) uses a regional data warehouse powered by DHIS2 to consolidate aggregate health data from the 15 ECOWAS (Economic Community of West African States) member states.

UiO and WAHO: An ongoing HIS-strengthening collaboration since 2011 UiO has assisted WAHO in building HIS capacity within the organization and in its member states. In 2013, an online regional data warehouse was set up using DHIS2.

At WAHO, the focus is on aligning data, disease and epidemiological surveillance technology, quality control and improved data standards.
