If you do not agree with any of these terms, you are prohibited from using or accessing this site. The materials contained in this website are protected by applicable copyright and trademark law.

    Use License

    Permission is granted to temporarily download one copy of the materials (not applicable to the DHIS2 software) on the DHIS2 web site for personal, non-commercial transitory viewing only. This is the grant of a license, not a transfer of title, and under this license you may not:

    • modify or copy the materials;
    • use the materials for any commercial purpose, or for any public display (commercial or non-commercial);
    • remove any copyright or other proprietary notations from the materials; or
    • transfer the materials to another person or “mirror” the materials on any other server.

    This license shall automatically terminate if you violate any of these restrictions and may be terminated by HISP at any time. Upon terminating your viewing of these materials or upon the termination of this license, you must destroy any downloaded materials in your possession whether in electronic or printed format.


    The materials on the DHIS2 website are provided “as is.” HISP makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaims and negates all other warranties, including without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights. Further, HISP does not warrant or make any representations concerning the accuracy, likely results, or reliability of the use of the materials on its website or otherwise relating to such materials or on any sites linked to this site.


    In no event shall HISP or its suppliers be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption) arising out of the use or inability to use the materials on the DHIS2 website, even if HISP or a HISP authorized representative has been notified orally or in writing of the possibility of such damage. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.

HISP does not warrant that any of the materials on its web site are accurate, complete, or current. HISP may make changes to the materials contained on its web site at any time without notice. HISP does not, however, make any commitment to update the materials.


    HISP has not reviewed all of the sites linked to the DHIS2 website and is not responsible for the contents of any such linked site. The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by HISP of the site. Use of any such linked web site is at the user’s own risk.

    Terms of Use Modifications
