District Health Information Software, or DHIS2, is one of the most important sources of health data in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Used by 72 different LMIC governments, DHIS2 is a web-based open-source platform that is used to collect, manage, and analyze routine and critical health data. It is the backbone for national health information systems in these countries and a vital resource for monitoring program and policy performance.
