A 20 m spatial resolution geotiff of travel time to the nearest hospital in Zimbabwe. Hospitals here included mission hospitals, district hospitrals and provincial hospitals, these facilities all have medical doctors present and offer refeeral services from primary health care, can attend to emergencie and provincial hospitals can offer specialist health 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.
