Using Geospatial Analysis to Inform Decision Making in Targeting Health Facility-Based Programs: A Guidance Document Abstract:

Geospatial analysis and geographic information system (GIS) software are useful tools for decision-making. This is because, to maximize health service coverage and access, it is important to assess whether the locations of health facilities are appropriately distributed throughout populated areas. This guide describes the questions that need to be answered and the data required to make a decision about resource allocation, using GIS tools.The guide also presents an illustrative scenario in which geospatial techniques were used to target investments in improving antenatal care coverage in Namibia
