DHIS 2 is an open source software combining data capture with data visualization. This software enables the user to collect, manage and visualize data all in the same application, so users do not have to manage their data elsewhere. DHIS 2 offers comprehensive features, from GIS and Excel sheets to photo and video. It has several interactive features such as a comment section and an SMS reminder.

DHIS 2 was developed by the Health Systems Information Programme (HSIP) - a worldwide network coordinated by the Department of Informatics at the University of Oslo. It started as an initiative to improve health services after the fall of apartheid in South Africa in the 1990s, currently the HSIP designs, implements, and sustains Health Information Systems with developers in Vietnam, India, Tanzania, Norway, Ireland, South Africa and US.
