Healthcare Accessibility Planning

Achieving universal health care access is a key development priority and a target of Sustainable Development Goal number 3.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has only reinforced this urge. A rapid expansion of public, affordable health care infrastructure is particularly crucial in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

In this project we develop a planning-oriented, inequality-focused analysis of health care accessibility in SSA based on a state-of-the-art georeferenced database of public health care facilities.
