Modeling Physical Accessibility to Health Care and Geographic Coverage (AccessMod©)
Example of use of AccessMod©
The number of studies using GIS to measure accessibility to health care and/or geographic coverage is constantly growing.
Among those, several have been using AccessMod© to conduct such type of analysis. The non-exhaustive list of the article presented here gives access to some of them:
Huerta Munoz U., Källestål C.CK (2012)
Alegana V.A, Wright J.A, Pentrina U., Noor A.M., Snow R.W., Atkinson P.M. (2012)
Costa, C.; Santana, P.; Almendra, R.; Freitas, P.; Zaky, A. (2009)
Ebener S., Naphini P., Fleming P., Kafakalawa W., Kondowe O.D., Makwiza I., Manda K., Mzembe J., Moyo C. (2009):
Other studies, which did not lead to a publication yes, include the application by WHO of AccessMod© over14 countries in the context of cost-effectiveness analysis as well as, more recently, the use of the tool by WHO/HSS/HSF in 5 countries (Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Laos, Malawi and Rwanda) to measure physical accessibility to Emergency Obstetric Care (EmOC).
