I'm using HIV prevalence data for Uganda from the AIS 2011 HIV File and Contraception data from the DHS 2016 Individual Recode File. The Region Names are not matching up between these two datasets. The region names for the Contraception Data, from the 2016 Individual Recode File, are as follows:

0 = 'UG7 - Kampala'
1 = 'UG7 - Central1'
2 = 'UG7 - Central2'
3 = 'UG7 - Busoga' - Eastern
4 = 'UG7 - Bukedi' - Eastern
5 = 'UG7 - Bugishu' - Eastern
6 = 'UG7 - Teso' - Eastern
7 = 'UG7 - Karamoja' - Northern
8 = 'UG7 - Lango' - Northern
9 = 'UG7 - Acholi'- Northern
10 = 'UG7 - West Nile' - Northern
11 = 'UG7 - Bunyoro' - Western
12 = 'UG7 - Tooro' - Western
13 = 'UG7 - Ankole' - Western
14 = 'UG7 - Kigezi' - Western

However, in the HIV dataset from the AIS 2011 HIV File, the Region Names are as follows:

1= 'UG6 - Central 1'
2= 'UG6 - Central 2'
3= 'UG6 - Kampala'
4= 'UG6 - East Central'
5= 'UG6 - Mid Eastern'
6= 'UG6 - North East'
7= 'UG6 - West Nile'
8= 'UG6 - Mid Northern'
9= 'UG6 - South Western'
10='UG6 - Mid Western';

Is there a recode available to link the regions in each dataset?
