This session takes place in: Auditorium 2 - Vilhelm Bjerknes’ hus

What is the session about
The MSF field work is supported by the 6 MSF operational sections. Each one defines independently the strategic direction of the section. This results in different DHIS2 architectures to solve a common issue: the intense use of DHIS2 in remote areas with poor, intermittent, or shared internet connections.
We will show the architecture of some of these implementations, the mentioned challenges and solutions. In particular:
  • Metadata and data Synchronization challenges and solutions
  • A Reactive Vaccination Campaign App
  • Praxis: a progressive offline/online webapp that interfaces the user and the central DHIS2 instance.

We would like also to have an open discussion and share experiences between participants facing same problematics.
