Since 2009, several USAID-supported countries and independent and third parties have implemented applications of the core iHRIS software. Because iHRIS is customizable and freely distributed under an open source license, a diversity of organizations have adopted it, including national ministries of health, nursing and midwifery councils, professional associations, and district-level health service providers. We guide these organizations through an implementation process of requirements development, customization, pilot, scale-up, and sustainability.
Currently, 19 countries are using iHRIS with 1 more in the pipeline (listed as TBD). Worldwide, more than 900,000 health worker records are supported in iHRIS. A country is considered as “using iHRIS” once there are countable records in the system. iHRIS has been translated by volunteers into more than 14 languages, including French, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, and Swahili.
