WHO Global Health Facilities Database: Ensuring access to primary healthcare and UHC (World Health Organization)

World Health Organization: WHO Global Health Facilities Database: Ensuring access to primary healthcare and UHC. “The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed urgent gaps in countries’ current ability to locate health facilities, impeding progress to provide equitable access to therapeutics, diagnostics, and vaccinations through the ACT-Accelerator and other initiatives. As a standardized and open access repository of health facility information, the database will provide critical insights to deliver primary health care, especially during emergencies. It will also leverage the power of geospatial data to map health facilities in relation to communities and help bridge long-standing inequalities in access and use.”
