objectives of this session
Objectives of this session
  • Discuss the role of health facility mapping in strengthening health service delivery
  • Disseminate key approaches to HF mapping, including advantages and disadvantages of specific approaches
presentation outline
Presentation outline
  • Role of health facility mapping/assessment:
    • What is it, what it does and what does not do
  • Differences between health facility mapping and population based surveys
  • Key approaches to health facility mapping:
    • Service Availability Mapping (SAM)
    • Service Provision Assessment (SPA)
    • Health Facility Census (HFC)
    • VCT and PMTCT mapping
  • Conclusion
  • Facility: Any site where clients receive formal sector health services
    • May includes temporary sites/outreach service sites
    • Includes stand-alone VCT; maternity homes; hospices
    • Includes private doctor offices (limited availability of information thus far)

why collect data on hf
Why collect data on HF
  • Huge investments in the formal health sector:
    • Construction and infrastructure development
    • Procurement of equipment and supplies
    • Procurement of medicines
    • Training
    • Pilot projects to strengthen service delivery and systems (for specific services)

what are the key questions answered by hf data
What are the key questions answered by HF data?
  • Quantity and availability of services
    • Where are the service delivery points?
    • What services available?
    • In what quantity/frequency?
    • How many health workers are working?
  • Quality of services
    • Is there a standard of care guidelines? Are they being used?
    • Are health workers adhering to the guidelines?
  • Support mechanism
    • Condition of building
    • Availability and condition of equipment
    • Availability of supplies
    • Management systems and practice

key questions answered by population based surveys
Key questions answered by Population-based surveys
  • What proportion of the population is using services?
  • What is the characteristics of individuals/ households who are using services vis-a-vis those who are not?
  • What are the key facilitating and constraining factors to service utilization?
  • What are the socioeconomic differences in morbidity and mortality levels?
  • How are health outcomes impacted by access to services?
advantages of hf data
Advantages of HF data
  • Contribute to health system strengthening
  • Important component of the national HIS
  • Increase the domains of data for investigation, making triangulation possible
  • HF data can help determine whether population based surveys are necessary, saving costs (e.g. the IMCI-MCE Survey).
characteristics of system strength affected by hf mapping
Characteristics of system strength affected by HF mapping
  • Provisions of basic services
  • Well integrated & complementary services: public/private, static/outreach, different levels: (pry, secondary, referral)
  • Efficient use of facility resources, including personnel, infrastructure, equipment, supplies and time
  • Existence of coordinating mechanisms among key levels and programs: outreach departments, community workers etc
  • Ownership by, & support for, national/community counterparts
  • RHIS/monitoring & evaluation systems
key approaches
Key approaches
  • Service Availability Mapping(WHO)
  • Service Provision Assessment (ORC Macro/USAID)
  • Health Facility Census (JICA)
  • Facility Audit of Service Quality (UNC/USAID)
  • VCT and PMTCT Mapping
displaying hf data
Displaying HF data

May display data using simple basic maps or advanced maps

Basic versus advanced mapping:
  • dot map or shaded polygon map; displays simple patterns and geographic dispersions.
  • Choropleth, or shaded polygon maps can also be a valuable way to display geographic data.
  • Software requirements for basic mapping: EpiMap, SIGEpi (produced by PAHO), Healthmapper (WHO) as well as
  • ArcGIS.

Advanced Mapping: key is that data is explored in greater depth to produce fuller understanding of the geographic patterns. Require more sophisticated program such as ArcGIS, and additional training.
  • Basic mapping may be transitioned to more advanced mapping if relevant information is available and there is adequate planning at the start of the Project
