Our team (@sunbiz ; @shbucher ) recently completed a large scale field trial in Kenya and Nigeria (the eHBB/mHBS study). For that project, we deployed a “research version” of mHBS/DHIS2. Stakeholders are requesting a “scale-up” version of the tool, an application that is downloadable from Google Play, and has functions and features enabled, in the scale-up version, that were “hidden” in the research version.
