PEPFAR organizes data within a geographic hierarchy of regions, countries, provinces, and lower levels of administrative organization. In DATIM, these administrative levels are sometimes referred to by their level in the hierarchy (i.e. DATIM level 1-9). However, the common names for these "organization units", such as province or subcounty, do not exist in the system itself. This DATIM OU Hierarchy Common Names Guide provides a simple table that allows users to identify the common name for operating unit (OU) DATIM levels.
The guide also includes information on geographic coordinates for facilities that have reported MER data. "Facility coordinate completion" is the percentage of PEPFAR-supported facilities that have latitude and longitude in DATIM.
