Slide 6: Main Reporting Line

Taking the example of the normal reporting line from the health unit to the district administration and further on to the regional level, the district administration could be called an aggregational node in a reporting tree on the aggregational level n. The district administration takes a certain number of reports from the lower aggregational level n-1, that of the health units, and compiles them into a summary report. The summary report is then forwarded to the next higher level n+1, which could be the regional administration. The regional administration is itself again an aggregational node of all the inferior districts.

There are, however, exceptions from these main lines. The consequences of these exceptions for the SAPHMIS are explained in the following sections.
