|Proposal status:||Draft (under way)|
|Definition:||Specific tagging for health boundaries|
Health boundaries appear to be different from administrative boundaries in a significant number of countries.
|boundary=health||A tag for health divisions limits and relations|
|health_level=*||A tag to describe the level of the health division, working in a similar way as admin_level=*|
|name=*||The name of the health division|
|ref=*||The reference code (id number) associated to the health division by the national health authority (SNIS in DRC)|
In countries suveyed so far, there seem to be usually 3 to 4 active levels of health divisions. The suggestion initially expressed on this wiki and already followed in the DRC was to use only the even numbers for describing the different health levels. This strategy will allow creating additional intermediate levels in the future, with limited consequences (using the odd numbers when necessary).
The following tag can be applied to objects such as villages, health facilities or smaller health divisions, in order to indicate from which health division they are part of.
|is_in:health_level2=*||The name of the health division of level 2 including the object.|
|is_in:health_level4=*||The name of the health division of level 4 including the object.|
|is_in:health_level6=*||The name of the health division of level 6 including the object.|
|is_in:health_level8=*||The name of the health division of level 8 including the object.|
|is_in:health_level10=*||The name of the health division of level 10 including the object.|
