This indicator reflects the distance from a child’s household to the health facility they normally attend. Distance is measured as the length of time travelled to reach the health facility, by whatever form of transport is usually used. The health facility is regarded as “far” if a child would have to travel more than 30 minutes to reach it, irrespective of mode of transport.
