This is a District Education Management Information System (DEMIS) Toolkit for Zimbabwe which was prepared by UNESCO Harare in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Culture (Zimbabwe), the National AIDS Council and UNAIDS. It outlines the aims and objectives, phases and functions of DEMIS. It also discusses the DEMIS processes in Zimbabwe, the current system and the data collection process. The toolkit provides the instruments used to collect data of a number of key management and HIV/AIDS indicators, such as teacher absenteeism and attrition, pupils enrolment, drop-out rates, orphans etc. on a monthly basis in schools. The DEMIS tool was initially developed by HEARD of the University of Natal and has been adopted to suit the Zimbabwean context.
