    About DHIS2: Open-source software as a public good

    DHIS2 is a free and open source software platform for the collection, management, analysis and use of data. The platform is used by governments, international development agencies and NGOs worldwide to improve access and use of information in the health sector in low- and middle-income countries — supporting control and treatment of diseases like HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis; detection and response to disease outbreaks; and analysis of program impact and resource utilization–as well as in other sectors such as education, sanitation, and more.

    The DHIS2 platform has become a global standard within international development and has a huge impact on the way countries manage their information systems. While our projects have a global reach and scale, the system itself is locally owned: each country or organization using DHIS2 downloads, installs, and customizes the system to meet their needs. Working with the DHIS2 core team means being part of a long-term project to produce, maintain and support open-source software as a global public good.

    Who are we: HISP-UiO and DHIS2

    DHIS2 is developed and maintained by the Health Information Systems Programme (HISP) within the Department of Informatics at the University of Oslo (UiO). The DHIS2 core team is made up of over 80 staff members representing many nationalities who work with DHIS2 software development, DHIS2 implementation and the DHIS2 Academy training program. While many team members are based at UiO, a significant number also work remotely. In addition to HISP-UiO, a network of HISP groups provides direct DHIS2 implementation support to countries in their regions.

    DHIS2 is funded by a network of international donors, including The Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad); The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria; PEPFAR; The World Health Organization (WHO), The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; UNICEF and GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance. HISP-UiO is a World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Innovation and Implementation Research for health information systems strengthening.
