The resilience of member states of the UN and local/regional communities differs spatially and it could get worse or improve over time. We start in this learning resource with an UN statistics that explain the objective of "Leaving no one behind" in the health sector.

Skilled Health Personell[edit | edit source]

The following topic addresses the health service delivery and analyzes households and the possibility to attend skilled health personnel if women give birth to baby. This learning resource look as introduction on the spatial diversity of access to resources[2].

Looking at Southern Asia or sub-Saharan Africa this is visible e.g. in area of health service delivery.

  • Fewer than 30% of births among women in the poorest 20% of households are attended by skilled health personnel or have access to a sufficient health care service,
  • compared to over 80% of births in the richest 20% of households[2].

Global Access linked to Poverty[edit | edit source]

If we consider the attendance to skilled health personnel globally in 2015,

  • 43% of births in the richest 20% of households attended globally skilled health personnel and
  • among the poorest 20% of poorest households 89 attended globally skilled health personnel[2].
