Health System Strengthening: Transforming the health information system in Bangladesh
Case Study Bangladesh
Ten years ago, Bangladesh’s health information system (HIS) was paper-based and built in a disorganised manner around the unique needs of different programmes and organisations. Today, Bangladesh is the largest DHIS2 deployer in the world. The reporting rate is on average 98%. Routine health information is now available in a timely manner, in a format accessible to all. The system now connects central, divisional and district levels with sub-district health facilities and over 13,000 community clinics. DHIS2 has been a vehicle for data systems improvement and other areas of health systems strengthening overall.
