A 20 m spatial resolution geotiff of travel time to level IV health facilities in Uganda. Level IV facilities typically have Qualified nurses, Nurse aids, Clinical officers (physicians assistants) and Doctors (not all will have doctors) present within them. The services that Level IV facilities typically provide are; laboratory services, operations, maternity care, Inpatient care. The data was generated using the Child Poverty and Access to Services (CPAS) software (10.5281/zenodo.4638563) and was created as part of the CPAS project within the Data for Children Collaborative. The travel time is calculated assuming walking speeds and has been reduced by 22% to reflect the fact that children do not walk as fast adults. A full description will be available in a paper that has been submitted for review.
