A key approach in the HISP network is to stay close to the user and innovate based on understanding the situation on the ground. In this session you will hear stories from ongoing research projects in the field. We will also discuss our common vocabulary to improve HMIS implemetations.

Professor Kristin Braa and professor Jørn Braa will give an introduction about the importance of research in the success of DHIS2 over the past 20 years.
Jørn Braa will talk about ongoing research on data use practices in east Africa. He has recently visited a range of countries in the region, together with local HISP-groups, to better understand how people analyse data and make descicions based on these data.

Researcher Arunima Mukherjee and research and evaluation coordinator Anne Asmyr Thorseng will talk about an ongoing study in Odisha, a state on the Indian east coast that has used DHIS2 for over 10 years. The focus of this study is to understand the drivers and limitations for institutionalisation, governance, capacity strengthening and sustainability.

We welcome discussions on relevant research topics and how we as a community best can understand the challenges on the ground to improve both the platform and implementations.
