read the new user stories!


today we are releasing the first set of user stories told by DHIS 2 implementers:

From these stories you can learn how:

  • Tanzania is using DHIS 2 as their national HMIS with support from the University of Dar es Salaam, and how they managed to build a sustainable and integrated health information system.

  • PSI is using DHIS 2 for their global social franchise, where 20 countries use DHIS 2 as their day-to-day management system and 60 countries report aggregate data.

  • Akros is using DHIS 2 to improve access to water, sanitation and hygiene in Zambia by empowering the local communities with access to information through the use of mobile devices.

These are the first in a new series of user stories. We hope they will be helpful for others and feedback is, of course, much appreciated.
