hi ian, maning,

tagging health centers as public building or doctor's clinic would probably
be correct in keeping with generic tagging, but it would be more useful if
they are tagged specifically as "health centers". i've been convincing my
boss at the national telehealth center, UP Manila, to use
openstreetmap.organd this would be a good use case for us.

ian, if both health centers and police outposts are tagged as public
buildings, how do we differentiate them? there's value in distinguishing the
health centers as such, and we'd like to be able to work with that data to
help direct patients to the nearest one.
