Spatial analysis

Spatial analysis will be carried out in all countries. The objective is to obtain additional data on access to health care. Emmanuel Bonnet, in the presentation below, explains five uses for cartography in health research: 1) Map the spatial distribution of a health condition (e.g. disease), 2) Estimate the densities and use of care (e.g. the distance between the place of residence of a indigent person and the nearest health center), 3) Analyze geographic accessibility (e.g. of a health center), 4) Produce spatial statistics to measure and model, 5) Collect and monitor indicators.
