In 2015, the United Nations adopted the objective of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) for 2030. However nearly half of the global population is still without access to essential health services. In this context, spatial modeling of healthcare accessibility is an essential tool to optimize the allocation of national and international resources.
To support decision-making in public health funding, Bluesquare offers several modeling products based on geospatial data to measure the impact of investments in terms of population served.
During this webinar, Bluesquare will present its work in Niger with the Ministry of Health to measure and identify the populations served by health facilities and to identify potential areas for new health facilities. You will also learn how geographic population distribution data (WorldPop) and health facility data in the national DHIS2 were used for this mapping.
