Modeling Physical Accessibility to Health Care and Geographic Coverage (AccessMod©)

What is AccessMod©?

AccessMod© is a toolbox that uses the power of Geographic Information System (GIS) to:

  • measure physical accessibility to health care,
  • estimate geographical coverage (a combination of availability and accessibility coverage) of an existing health facility network,
  • complement the existing network in the context of a scaling up exercise or to provide information for cost effectiveness analysis when no information about the existing network is available.
