According to the World Health Organization (2017), the health goal (SDG 3) is broad as it entails ensuring healthy lives and promoting the wellbeing of all at all ages. To achieve the overall health goal, governments are putting in place universal health coverage (UHC) policies and strategies. The basic question that relates to health-related information dissemination and linkages to spatial information draws its origin from the case study of the cholera outbreak in London in the year 1854. A simple map by Dr. John Snow helped to see the pattern and determine the source of the outbreak. 

GIS and RS have in the recent past been used in health facility location, sharing of COVID-19 information through GIS powered dashboards, among other areas.
