Too many women across the world still struggle to access quality maternal health care. Universal Health Coverage means that everyone – including the poorest and most marginalised – can access the health care they need without financial hardship.
In a world oversaturated with data, static pie charts and line graphs are no longer sufficient – we need tools which marry data visualisation with the latest consolidated, definitive and trusted evidence. In the maternal and newborn health field, we are lucky to have a range of sites on offer.
After months of careful gathering of the data, deciding the indicators, testing the codes, designing how the numbers will be translated into graphs and maps, consulting with governments across Africa, a new website - www.africanhealthstats.org is finally here.
