Announcing OMRS18!


On behalf of the entire OpenMRS community, we are thrilled to announce the 2018 OpenMRS Implementers’ Conference (#OMRS18) will be hosted in  Nairobi  Kenya, in association with HELINA 2018 (#HELINA2018), the biannual meeting of the Pan-African Health Informatics Association.  Our hosts, the Kenya Ministry of Health, the Kenya Health Informatics Association (KeHIA – and the OpenMRS Kenya Community have organised a planning committee over the past few weeks, and they have set up regular planning meetings with the OpenMRS Events Team to ensure this is a world class event.

Both events are running concurrently.  The HELINA event runs from Monday 3rd December to Wednesday Morning 5th December and the OpenMRS Conference runs from  the Afternoon of  Tuesday 4th December until Saturday 8th December.  The OpenMRS hackathon is scheduled for one day, that is, Saturday 8th December.

As the planning process unfolds, we’ll update with more information.  We know there’s considerable interest in this event, and we’ll do our best to answer every question you have well in advance so you can prepare to attend this year’s conference.   If you are interested in helping support the event, let us know by sending email to
