Area: 555,000 km2 Population: 20 million (2004 Census)


Overview l.jpg

Overview

  • USAID/Yemen supported development of a national health database linked to census

  • MOPHP at central and decentralized levels now able to make informed decisions - identifying gaps for better planning and targeting human and financial resources

  • Transparency - Information made available to be used by a broad group of users (no more hiding information)


Yemen health gis tools l.jpg

Yemen Health GIS Tools

  • Facility Survey Analyzer: Query/analytical tool using the health facility survey data

  • Demographic Profiler: Generates density maps based on key demographics

  • Manpower Tracker: Profiles health occupations using pie charts and bar graphs

  • Facility Accessibility Mapper: Calculates and displays the area surrounding a health facility that meets a user-defined time-travel accessibility criteria.

  • Service Network Provider: Illustrates health care service networks

  • Health Care Gap Analyzer: Identifies gaps in health care coverage according to user specifications

  • Immunization Manager: Time series analysis of routine immunization coverage and vaccine wastage

  • Data Integrator: Rapid integration of user data into HIS database


Slide5 l.jpg

Step 1: Identify health facilities with immunization services and a vaccine refrigerator (YELLOW points)


Slide6 l.jpg

Step 2: Analyze the immunization services network by dividing area according to closest proximity to service provider (LT GREEN area)


Slide7 l.jpg

Step 3: Analyze the 60-minute walking accessibility/coverage area (LT BLUE)


Slide8 l.jpg

Step 4: Identify and prioritize underserved areas and target communities or health facilities for intervention (RED vs. YELLOW OR GREEN areas)


Slide9 l.jpg

Step 5: Evaluate immunization gaps compared to an analysis of 60-minute accessibility area for immunization services added to user-selected existing facilities (WHITE area) and/or initiated at potential new facilities (GRAY area).


Use of health care decision results l.jpg

Use of Health Care Decision Results

  • MoPHP/Local Authorities are using health GIS to identify and prioritize underserved areas and target communities or health facilities for intervention.

  • MoPHP/Donors are using health GIS to identify and prioritize underserved areas and justify reallocation of fund.

  • Local Authorities are using health GIS to justify (re)allocation of resources.

  • Governorate health officials are using health GIS to analyze routine immunization coverage, project vaccine needs, and track vaccine wastage.

Use of Health Care Decision ResultsContinued

  • Governorate health officials are using health GIS for tracking resources and eliminating duplication in service coverage.

  • Governorate health officials are using health GIS to identify and prioritize areas for mobile medical services.

  • Governorate health officials are using health GIS to identify and prioritize rural facilities in need of electricity to support cold chain.

  • Governorate health officials are using health GIS to prioritize deployment of new staff.
