About Us

This website is engineered by the Public Health Information System (PHIS) of the Department of Health.

The PHIS is a major initiative announced in the Chief Executive's Policy Address. First of its kind in Hong Kong, the PHIS serves to enhance our ability to collect, collate, analyze and disseminate health information. It contributes greatly towards making evidence-based decisions on health and health-related policies, resource allocation, and the planning, implementation and evaluation of health services and programmes.

The Surveillance & Epidemiology Branch is responsible for the planning, development and maintenance of the PHIS.
