Training Materials

Welcome to the training homepage of the R4EPIs project. The purpose of these pages are to assist you in the use and modification of the outbreak and survey templates.

R basics

These pages provide an introduction to R and RStudio, with a focus on the functions and code structures found in the templates.

Case study walk-through

These pages demonstrate use of the Acute Jaundice Syndrome (AJS) outbreak template to produce an epidemiological situation report for an outbreak that occurred in Am Timan, Chad.

The datasets used and the final template script can be downloaded from the Case Study Overview page.

The datasets used are not standardised to DHIS or any data dictionary. This allows demonstration of many techniques to modify the template.
