Global HISP Network

The Health Information Systems Programme (HISP) at the University of Oslo (UiO) works in collaboration with a global network of HISP groups to provide DHIS2 implementation support, local customization and configuration, and in-country and regional capacity building through our DHIS2 Academy program, and to promote DHIS2 as a global public good. HISP groups also play an important role in the DHIS2 software development process, including requirements gathering, facilitating feedback from the field, and innovative development of web and mobile applications and local configurations that DHIS2 developers can then integrate into the core platform for worldwide use. 

HISP groups are our trusted, long-term partners in the field. As such, they are the primary DHIS2 liaisons with Ministries of Health in the countries where DHIS2 is deployed, and this close and ongoing collaboration has been the main reason for the success of DHIS2 adoption in more than 70 countries. These groups are led by DHIS2 experts--several of whom have completed PhD and MA programs related to DHIS2/HISP projects at UiO or partner universities--and are staffed with experienced DHIS2 implementers, developers, and trainers who provide support for national, regional, and international projects.

The global HISP network participates in projects coordinated through HISP-UiO, and individual HISP groups are also available to provide DHIS2 support and consultancy directly. You can contact a HISP group using the information listed below, which is organized by region. Specific HISP groups also provide support to global language communities outside of their immediate region, such as HISP WCA for French and HISP Mozambique for Portuguese. To announce RFIs or RFPs to the broader community of DHIS2 Experts, including the HISP groups, you can post them on the DHIS2 Community of Practice and/or send an email to experts@dhis2.org.
