The Truth About Public-Private Partnerships: What Works, What Doesn't and Why

Sunday, September 27, 2015
12:00pm to 1:45pm ET

The premise behind public-private partnerships in global health: the sum of the total equals more than the individual parts. Tremendous advances in global health have been made when the right set of skills are brought together by committed partners and matched with mechanisms designed to leverage the creativity, innovation and resources that each partner brings to the challenge. 

This high level discussion will shed light on what works, what doesn’t and why in multisector engagement.

Sponsors: Management Sciences for Health (MSH), Princeton University, Rabin Martin, The U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP)

HISP Uganda DHIS2 Training Courses are designed, built, and taught by experts in health informatics and surveillance who have successfully implemented large number of scaled DHIS2 instances. These courses teach participants how to utilize DHIS2 tools for dynamic, timely and quality program monitoring using hands-on approach. Our world class trainers, instructors and lecturers strive to spark critical thinking through analysis of real data from multiple program scenarios, using a customized DHIS2 server for HISP courses. Lessons are presented through lectures, worked examples, practice exercises and live discussions. Every pertinent aspect of DHIS2 functionality is covered in detail; having taken every course, students will have the capability of supporting a broad range of DHIS2 implementations. The material has been designed to be intense but not overwhelming, and is presented at a measured pace. DHIS2 is quickly becoming the information system of choice for health programs and professionals. For successful health system management, data must not only be collected, but also actively analyzed, validated, visualized and mapped to enable quality, evidence-based decisions. DHIS2, with its data storage, data visualization and mapping capabilities coupled with a customizable user interface, mobile phone data collection modules and reporting engines provides the means to support health professionals to make data-driven decisions quickly. DHIS2 courses will equip participants with a fundamental understanding of the overall DHIS2 system structure and functionalities. DHIS2 implementation and surveillance systems experts will discuss live applications in mobile surveillance to emphasize the power of DHIS2. Additionally, participants will be introduced to data analysis concepts necessary for advancement through subsequent DHIS2 training courses.
