Date: Thursday 1st February 2018

Time: 17.00 – 18.30

Venue: John Snow B, Keppel Street

Speakers: Martin Dale and Cristina Lussiana presented via live video conference.

Population Service International (PSI) is a public health agency working in over 50 countries in the areas of malaria, family planning, HIV, diarrhoea, pneumonia and sanitation. The presentation focused on how evaluations can be used to create interventions that improve lives. Christina discussed the role of the data management and monitoring tool Demographic Health Information System (DHIS 2)  – how it works and how it is being used by both NGOs and at the national level in developing countries. Panel members presented a case study of DHIS2 in action and also ideas for how students can get involved.

This event was part of the Centre for Evaluation’s student seminar series organised by our student reps. For a summary of the talk read our blog post from MSc student Yasmin Hussain Al-Haboubi.
