In February 2017, 24 health workers in Entebbe, Somalia received training on how to enter data in the WHO-VL modules. The training, performed by WHO and in collaboration with HISP Uganda, lasted for 5-days. Health workers learned about areas such as identifying the minimum data to be collected for each VL patient; DHIS2 tools and features for surveillance (individual and aggregated data entry, data validation, data analysis and working with dashboards); and practical sessions for data entry in Tracker Capture. At the end of the training, participants were expected to know how to:
Connect to the platform,
Enter individual and aggregated data,
Validate their data using the data validation tools,
Analyze the data through the interpretation of dashboards showing indicators required by the Leishmaniasis Programme.
