As geographers, we seek to answer the question: why do things happen where they happen?
Maps provide the visualization and context to make sense of often incomprehensible data. By collecting spatial data and combining it with existing health information to produce maps, organizations can illustrate the geographic distribution of the problems they seek to address, bringing better services to where they're needed most.
In much of the developing world, physical access to primary care can be the single most determining factor in the utilization of health services, and consequently, the health of a population.
