NEP Custom Data Import Application
The NEP Custom Data Import Application is a standalone Grails application that was developed by 2Paths Solutions Ltd. for Johns Hopkins University to support a data repository for their National Evaluation Platforms (NEP).
From 2014 through 2017, four African countries — Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, and Tanzania are building their own National Evaluation Platforms, with technical guidance from the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) Institute for International Programs (IIP) and funding support from the Government of Canada. Public institutions are leading actors in every aspect of NEP's development and use. Each country has identified a "home institution" to manage NEP by maintaining the data, conducting analyses, and leading hands-on capacity-building workshops with teams of other public sector NEP stakeholders. A national steering committee of high-level leaders from stakeholder institutions identifies priority evaluation questions and receives NEP findings.
The NEP hosts its data repository with DHIS 2, and the NEP Custom Data Import App facilitates the import of data in csv format into DHIS 2. The application supports both Tracker (Survey) data, and Aggregate Data Set data (eg: Census data).
Please see the NEP Custom Data Import Manual for a full description of the system and its functionality:
