The Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) project is excited to participate in the 2024 DHIS2 Annual Conference, taking place from June 10-13 in Oslo, Norway and virtually.

DHIS2 is an open source, web-based software platform for data collection, management, and analysis. It is the world’s largest health management information system platform and is used in more than 100 countries. The conference provides a unique venue for the global DHIS2 community — including implementers, developers, ministry representatives, technical partners, donors, and other experts — to share their insights and experiences. The conference aims to foster learning about the latest DHIS2 developments, drive innovations, and catalyze new partnerships and collaborations.

As a global leader in health management information systems for HIV programs, the EpiC Strategic Information (SI) team will be showcasing four oral presentations that highlight our innovative approaches to enhancing HIV management through digital solutions. FHI 360’s Information Solutions and Services (ISS), with support from EpiC SI, will also be presenting a custom application as a finalist in the annual app competition.
