DHIS2 & Catholic Relief Services

Supporting Ministries of Health with District Health Information Systems

DHIS2 is a health management information system intended to aggregate health data at national scale. The tool is used by ministries of health in more than 70 countries, including nationwide deployments in over 50. It is most widely used in sub-Saharan Africa with other deployments in Asia and Latin America. One of the widest adopted use scenarios for DHIS2 is feeding existing project data sources into established national DHIS2 instances, allowing governments insight into NGOs’ programmatic data. DHIS2 is also used when multiple stakeholders (such as government ministries or regional health actors) want to centralize data from multiple collection modalities in one place or share data with donors.
