Event: Better Data, Stronger Health Workforce: The Open Source iHRIS Approach

To ensure that the right health workers are in the right places with the right skills to deliver high-quality family planning, HIV/AIDS, and other essential health services, countries require current, accurate data on human resources for health. Join CapacityPlus and USAID for a knowledge-sharing and dissemination event on iHRIS—the leading open source software for national health workforce information systems. Participants will experience the iHRIS applications (ManageTrainQualifyPlan,Retain), learn about country success stories, and consider the power of open source approaches for maximizing local ownership, capacity-building, innovation, and partnership.

CapacityPlus is hosting this knowledge-sharing and dissemination event on Tuesday, May 6, 2014, from 12:00–4:30 p.m. at the National Press Club, Holeman Lounge, 529 14th Street NW, 13th Floor, Washington, DC. Lunch is included. RSVP.
