GRAPHC uses location data, spatial analytic methodologies and online mapping to analyse, interpret and display information in ways that promote better understanding of primary health care and the forces that affect it.
APHCRI’s National Centre for Geographic & Resource Analysis in Primary Health Care (GRAPHC) was established in November 2011 after over 18 months consultation with national reference group representatives, comprising government, academic and health care professionals.
The adoption of a geographic approach to primary health care research facilitates the development of the evidence base to inform locally relevant and equitable solutions for targeting health resources and services. The aim is to support community, health care service providers, academia, and policy makers to improve equity and access to health care services through better resource allocation.
