HISP is a global action research project considered as one of the University of Oslo's greatest international successes. HISP has developed the DHIS2 software - an IT system for collecting, validating, analyzing and presenting data for health information management activities.


Research topics

The system has revolutionized collection and use of health data in developing countries. DHIS2 was originally tailored for the health sector, but is also useful within other areas, such as water, sanitation and hygiene, logistics, education and agriculture.

Open Source Software DHIS2

At the core of HISP is the development of the open source and free software DHIS2 (District Health Information System 2) - a tool for collection, validation, analysis, and presentation of data.
