WHO Configuration Packages for DHIS2

About the configuration packages

The WHO configuration packages consist of DHIS2 metadata that provide standard configurations of DHIS2 according to WHO recommendations, aligned with a public health curriculum. An introduction to the standard configuration packages and curriculum is available on who.int.

In the development of these configuration packages, an effort has been made to follow some general design principles and a common naming convention.

Types of configuration packages

Three types of configuration packages exists:

Tracker configuration packages include one or more tracker (case-based) programmes, and related metadata such as program indicators and dashboards. The complete aggregate configuration packages include data sets for routine aggregate reporting, as well as dashboards. Finally, the dashboard configuration packages include indicators and dashboards only.

As far as possible, tracker configurations include the necessary program indicators to populate the data sets of the related aggregate configuration packages.

Installation guides

Generic installation guides are available for Complete aggregate packages and Dashboard packages. These describe the recommended steps for installing these packages, independently of the health programme in question. Where relevant, these are complemented with programme specific annexes, which listen under the corresponding programme section below.

For Tracker packages, technical installation guides have been developed specifically for each tracker programme. These are listed in the respective programme sections.

Other documentation

In additional to the installation guides, additional documentation is available for each package:

Document Purpose
Design document Explains how the configuration package has been configured.
Availability mapping Lists the indicators (dashboard packages) or data elements (complete packages) included in the package. This is intended to allow comparisons of the standard configurations packages to existing DHIS2 configurations.
Configuration Checklist of indicators and category option groups that should be configured, designed to facilitate configuration of dashboard packages.
Reference Reference list of all metadata included in the configuration package.

Configuration packages

The following sections gives an introduction to and overview of the available standard configuration packages by health area/programme, along with documentation, links to demo sites and the metadata files themselves.

Programmes

Cause of Death

Two standard configuration packages are available for reporting of causes of death using ICD-10-SMoL, one configured as a DHIS2 Tracker programme, one as DHIS2 Event programme (also known as Tracker without registration). ICD-10-SMoL is described further here. An installation guide is available here, which also discusses some of the pros and cons of the Tracker and Event programmes.

The Cause of Death design document describes how the Cause of Death programme has been designed. The Change log describes changes between each version.

EPI

Two standard configuration packages are available for immunisation: an aggregate configuration package that includes data collection and dashboards, and a dashboard configuration package that includes dashboards only.

The Immunisation system design document describes how the standard configuration for immunisation has been configured in DHIS2. The Change log describes changes between each version.

Annex to the general installation guide.

In addition to the standard configuration packages, a Immunisation Analysis DHIS2 app has been developed. This app provides additional analytical outputs, and supplements the standard configuration package. A user manual describing how to install, configure and use the Immunisation Analysis app is available here.

HIV

A standard configuration package for dashboards are available for HIV. The Change log describes changes between each version.

Malaria

Malaria configuration packages are available for burden reduction and elimination settings. For each of these, two configuration packages are available: an aggregate configuration packages that includes data collection and dashboards, and a dashboard configuration package that includes dashboards only.

The malaria system design document describes how the standard configuration for malaria has been configured in DHIS2. The Change log describes changes between each version.

Malaria historical data

The "Malaria historical data" package is not intended for prospective data collection, but to allow storing historical data on malaria cases that is not disaggregated by type of confirmation/malaria test. The package is intended to be used as an addition to the complete elimination or burden reduction packages, and therefore does not include the categories and other metadata that is already included in those complete packages.
