The DHIS2 community acted swiftly to accelerate case detection, situation reporting, active surveillance and response for COVID-19 by leveraging existing processes, networks, capacity and systems.

Early lessons learned are discussed from the rapid deployment of DHIS2 global public goods in 36 countries. Sri Lanka shares its pioneering role in customizing DHIS2 for COVID-19 Surveillance during the initial few weeks of COVID-19 pandemic and how on-the-ground experience guided the development of DHIS2 standard metadata package for COVID-19 Surveillance.

Uganda shares how the country leveraged its existing eIDSR platform in DHIS2 and further innovated for the demands of the COVID-19 response. Foundational to this success have been long-term investments in building national capacity, disseminating WHO data standards, and strengthening integrated disease surveillance.
