    General DHIS2 System Demos

    Explore the DHIS2 platform and test out features in our interactive demo database, which is based on real-world data, and includes the option to work with both aggregate and individual (Event and Tracker) data. You can try out the latest version, or choose previous versions from the options on the DHIS2 Play server.

    Android App: Mobile data entry

    The DHIS2 Android Capture App is a mobile application that functions natively with the DHIS2 core platform to extend data collection (and case-based monitoring and follow up activities) to Android mobile devices. You can test any DHIS2 demo database with the Android App by entering the appropriate information in the app when logging in.

    WHO DHIS2 Toolkit Demo

    DHIS2 has collaborated with the World Health Organization (WHO) to produce the DHIS2 Health Data Toolkit which includes best-practice system configurations for key health programs, such as HIV, TB, Malaria, and Immunization, as well as the WHO Data Quality Tool. This toolkit supports the adoption of WHO routine health data standards in a national HMIS.

    You can explore the WHO DHIS2 Health Data Toolkit with our interactive demos:

    • HMIS demo – includes dashboards and data capture for health programs in the DHIS2 toolkit
    • Data Quality Demo – includes data quality dashboards and the interactive WHO DQ tool

    DHIS2 for Education

    In addition to its use as a health management information system, DHIS2’s flexible data model means that it is a great tool for data collection and analysis in a variety of domains. DHIS2 for Education is a configuration of DHIS2 as an Education Management Information System (EMIS), which can be used for school and infrastructure management, student enrollment and attendance, nutrition and hygiene, resource allocation and more, as well as in combination with health or other data for multi-sector analysis.

    You can explore DHIS2 for Education on your own using our online demo database:

    eLMIS Sandbox

    DHIS2 is already in use in more than 20 countries in Africa and Asia, as a “last-mile” solution for facility-level vaccine logistics or as cold chain registry and other eLMIS uses, and the DHIS2 core team is working to produce generic tools and guidance for using DHIS2 for eLMIS contexts.

    You can explore functional prototypes of DHIS2 for logistics in our eLMIS sandbox environment. Read the user guide for more information.
