I was reading the OpenMRS Annual Report 2015 and noted that Nigeria is
not listed as a country in which OpenMRS is being implemented. This is
in contrast to the mail below.
Kindly contact the relevant person in the OpenMRS community to correct
this or get appropriate guidance on how to ensure that implementations
in Nigeria are captured in the database of the Community.

The OpenMRS West Africa team is glad to welcome Management Sciences for

OpenMRS user training was conducted simultaneously across three facilities
support by MSH, Nigeria (Usmanu Dafodiyo University Teaching Hospital
(UDUTH), Sokoto State, University of Illorin Teaching Hospital (UITH),
Illorin, Kwara State and General Hospital Minna, Niger State). The success
of these trainings is attributed to the outcome of effective stake-holders
engagement from project initiation to actual implementation.
Everyone, please join in welcoming MSH, Nigeria to list of *Active
of OpenMRS in Nigeria.
Thanks very much for bringing this to our attention @kayodu.
I can see on OpenMRS Atlas that Nigeria is very much represented (although many implementations have not been updated in several months).
Could yourself or @jaghatise refer us to the points of contact who can help us ensure that the Atlas is up to date?
Regarding the annual report, the data was gathered during a recent implementation survey. I will investigate and try to determine why the data from the Nigerian implementations were not included.
Thank you Pascal. I earlier faulted the report and wrote Terry for possible
adjustment/update. As at today, there are over 90 active implementations of
OpenMRS spread across Tertiary, Secondary and Primary Health facilities in
Nigeria. Gibril Gomez (gibrilgmz■■■■■■■■■■) is saddle with the task of
updating implementation locations on the atlas.
Okay thanks @jaghatise. I wonder if @ggomez can let us know if Atlas is up to date.
I will continue to investigate how we missed the Nigeria data in our report.
This is wonderful news! Thanks in advance to the team for keeping atlas.openmrs.org up to date so we can help the world know about the wonderful work happening in Nigeria.
I apologize for missing Nigeria in the report. We relied upon multiple methods to produce the list, but, in retrospect, we realize that we missed some countries (including Nigeria). We are discussing ways to modify the report to include those countries who were inadvertently not included in the current version.
Thanks for your patience. @terry.
This is very good news and glad that Nigeria is so well represented in the OpenMRS community if not in the annual report !
Could all those implementing OpenMRS kindly go to the OpenMRS Atlas
module and add/update their sites so we can have an up-to-date
information on those implementing as a starting point for exchange of
experiences and information.
As of today, Institute of Human Virology and Millennium Village are
the major implementers in Nigeria as shown on the OpenMRS Atlas.
We need to get Aids Healthcare Foundation (AHF) onboard. They are also
implementing OpenMRS in some locations across Nigeria.
Please do. It would take just a few minutes to put your
implementations on the map.
