Welcome to the

Health Information Platform for the WHO South-East Asia Region

The Health Information Platform—or HIP—is an integrated database of country health indicators from WHO global health estimates and nationally reported values across the 11 member states of the WHO South-East Asia Region. The HIP allows users to access and download data and indicators and utilize interactive analytics tools to generate tables and charts, view maps and dashboards, and generate visualizations. The HIP is powered by the District Health Information Software v.2 (DHIS2).
