OSM editor focused on health facilities

healthsites.io is a website focused on health facilities. You can use the website to add or edit health POI. Since the editor is focused on health, it encourages users to set specific tags relevant to this domain.

When a natural disaster or disease outbreak occurs there is a rush to establish accurate health care location data that can be used to support people on the ground. This has been demonstrated by events such as the Haiti earthquake and the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. As a result, valuable time is spent establishing accurate and accessible baseline health data. Healthsites establishes this data and the tools necessary to upload, manage and make this data easily and readily accessible.
