It is one of the global standard HMIS platforms implemented and used in more than 100 countries worldwide. Beyond the health sector, the DHIS2 platform has been customized and deployed in the agriculture sector by the UDSM DHIS2 lab. Other collaborative projects at the UDSM DHIS2 lab include research and innovation of the Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system at the UDSM Hospital used as a living lab model, integrated electronic disease surveillance and response system including COVID-19 applications, and human resources for health information system in Tanzania. Therefore, through the UDSM DHIS2 digital health lab, the CSE department over the past 20 years has interacted and worked, in a technical and research capacity, with a local and global community of digital health solutions and supported several countries in implementing other digital health and information use solutions. The department now wishes to attract talented Project Administrators to apply for a contractual engagement in the UDSM DHIS2 lab to work for the UDSM DHIS2 Project and other related projects.
