dhis 2

DHIS 2 is the flexible, web-based open-source information system with awesome visualisation features including GIS, charts and pivot-tables.

It is a free and open-source solution that runs on HTML5 and Java™, so it can run on just about anything – though we recommend Ubuntu Server.

DHIS2 is the next (r)evolutionary step in our District Health Information Software system, and is a next-generation data collection, aggregation and reporting tool.
