HABTech Solutions Integrates Ethiopian Calendar into DHIS2 Android App

The DHIS2 Android Capture App’s lack of compatibility for the Ethiopian calendar prevented it from being used as a full data collection platform. By integrating the Ethiopian calendar into the App, HABTech has removed this impediment.

Health professionals can now directly enter data into the DHIS2 system using just their mobile devices, without extra steps. The DHIS2 Android app offered a promising solution for streamlining data reporting from health facilities across Ethiopia that function seamlessly with the core DHIS2 instance.

This achievement prevails over a fundamental impediment to the Ethiopian Ministry of Health’s extensive implementation of this mobile data collection tool in the country.

The Ethiopian Ministry of Health intends to test the DHIS2 Android Capture App. with expanded calendar capabilities in the coming years.
