This presentation was given at the technical mash-up meeting on "Mapping for Maternal and Newborn Health", hosted by ICS Integrare and the University of Southampton, with the support of the Norwegian Agency for International Development (NORAD) in Southampton (UK), 11-12th March 2013. Further details are available here http://integrare.es/?cat=33
The project described in this presentation looks at identifying local health system supply side constraints to scaling up maternal and newborn health care as well as estimating the marginal investment needed to expand coverage and uptake of services. By Steeve Ebener, Gaia Geosystems.

  • Context - Investing the marginal dollar for MNH• Operationalizing the UN Secretary General’s Joint Action Plan for women and children’s health,• Undertaken to inform policy discussions on how to optimize or target the spending of the marginal dollar for maternal health at country level,• Examine the infrastructure requirements for scaling up coverage of institutional delivery with skilled attendance.

  • Tool – AccesMod (History)2002: Start of the activity within the context of the of a cost-effectiveness analysis2003: Need to develop an automated module. First results obtained through the application of the extension developed for ArcView2004: Decision on the name for the extension: AccessMod. First publication based on the use of AccessMod (ESRI health user conference)2005: Release of version 2.12008: Release of version 3.0 (anisotropic version for Arcview 3.2)2012: Release of version 4.0 (for ArcGIS 9.3.1) in the context of the Investing the marginal dollar for Maternal and Newborn Health project 10 years of development and use! Investing the marginal dollar for MNH: Geographic Accessibility Analysis in five countries | Southampton, March 11th, 2013
  • Tool – AccesMod (Download)Freely accessible for ArcView 3.2 and ArcGIS 9.3.1: • Through the WHO web site (currently updated): http://www.who.int/kms/initiatives/accessmod/en/ind ex.html • ArcGIS online: http://www.arcgis.com/home/index.html (search for AccessMod)Currently working at identifying sources of funding togenerate a version that would run under ArcGIS 10 Investing the marginal dollar for MNH: Geographic Accessibility Analysis in five countries | Southampton, March 11th, 2013
  • Maximum travel time To From Processing Order New health facility information Investing the marginal dollar for MNH: Geographic Accessibility Analysis in five countries| Southampton, March 11th, 2013
  • WHO MNH project – Analysis Country covered: Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Laos, Malawi and Rwanda (+ Philippines)Type of infrastructures: BEmOC and CEmOCAnalytical steps:1. Physical accessibility to EmOC: Proportion of births taking place within a given travel time to the nearest BEmOC or CEmOC2. Comparison between the physical accessibility analysis and data on actual service utilization (all facilities for BeMOC, C-sections for CEmOC)3. Accessibility coverage: Estimate the health system capacity that would be required to reach universal coverage for all the births located within 2 hours travel time from the nearest EmOC and initiate the policy dialogue with countries4. Cost analysis: Define a scenario to scale up the existing coverage capacity of the EmOC network currently in place to reach universal coverage over the all country and estimate the corresponding cost for this scaling up Investing the marginal dollar for MNH: Geographic Accessibility Analysis in five countries | Southampton, March 11th, 2013

  • WHO MNH project – Example of implementation in CambodiaInput data - StatisticsAt the national level - Total and urban/rural Crude Birth Rate (CBR); - Maximum expected travel speed on the different road typesAt the sub national level - Population by age groups and sex - CBR (or fertility rate if CBR not available) - Percentage of births delivered in a health facility (all level) - Percentage of births delivered by C-sectionAt the cluster level (Household survey): - Total number of non-assisted home deliveriesAt the health facility level: - For BEmoC (including CEmOC): Number of: nurses, midwifes and doctors - For CEmOC: Number of functional operatory theaters, OB/GYN, medical worker qualified to perform CS, medical worker qualified to perform anesthesiology Investing the marginal dollar for MNH: Geographic Accessibility Analysis in five countries | Southampton, March 11th, 2013

  • WHO MNH project – Added value to policy discussionInform current policy discussions at country and global level by providing:• Recommendations on health system output indicators and benchmarks on EmOC;• Evidence on current health system barriers to care from the supply perspective and their implications for expanding universal access to MNH services;• Guidance on the relative financial resource requirements for different scenarios aiming at expanding access to, and use of, quality skilled care at birth taking place in health facilities. Investing the marginal dollar for MNH: Geographic Accessibility Analysis in five countries | Southampton, March 11th, 2013
  • Strengths and Weaknesses of the approachStrengths:• Good level of flexibility• Goes beyond the usual accessibility analysis by including the capacity (HR and equipment) component to measure geographic coverage• Results are easy to understand and facilitate policy discussion• Allows using MNH as a driver to improve the integration of the geographic dimension in the HISWeaknesses:• Data intensive exercise (data availability, quality, accuracy,..)• Dependent on Esri’s technology (Arcview 3.2 or ArcGIS 9.3.1 + Spatial analyst extension) Investing the marginal dollar for MNH: Geographic Accessibility Analysis in five countries | Southampton, March 11th, 2013
  • Expectations from the mash-up• Learn about other approaches using GIS to measure physical accessibility and geographic coverage• Have a chance to discuss few issues including: • Methods to spatially distribute births at the sub national level • EmOC International/national norms (staff and equipment )• Find way to improve the current approach Investing the marginal dollar for MNH: Geographic Accessibility Analysis in five countries | Southampton, March 11th, 2013
