Our Vision for Community Engagement

We envision an engaged, coordinated community where members are invested in professional growth and client-driven solutions
We work to foster a diverse, inclusive environment where community members can easily consume, champion, and/or collaborate on initiatives, solutions, and topics that benefit country-level, OpenMRS implementations.
Top 3 Strategic Priorities for Community Engagement

To achieve this vision, we need Strategic Priorities that will guide us over the next 5 years and set us in the right direction. Our top 3 Strategic Directions are:

Projects Underway to Support Strategic Priorities

Status Legend

RED = Progressing slowly; large need for additional support (in-kind, funded, etc)

YELLOW = Progress will accelerate if specific needs are addressed.

GREEN = Project has good support; progressing at a good pace. More resources always welcome. 

1: Visible pathways to partner and contribute to community priorities

We aim to

1)  deliver greater visibility into community direction and how they relate to trends in the ecosystem, and

2) make it easy to contribute and collaborate to the initiatives with the most meaning for contributors and impact for our clients.
