Health areas and health zones are used as a unit of measurement by the humanitarian community and government health services in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Today the map of health area and health zones and the adjoining structures remains incomplete. This is the essential information for the planning of response activities and the country's health system. In January 2018, CartONG initiated a project named “Data collaborative in DRC to support the SDGs on health in the DRC" and funded by the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data This project had been set up and aimed at strengthening the cooperation of governmental and non-governmental actors for the production & updating of health sector data. This includes the mapping of areas & health zones as well as the compilation of data on health centers, areas and health zones, this operation was undertaken under the Referentiel Geographique Commun (RGC) in partnership with different actors including the OpenStreetMap DRC community, the Ministry of Health (DSNIS) and NGOs / UN agencies (including WHO, MSF and OCHA).
