This is a map of the Netherlands showing the distance to the nearest hospital (including outpatient clinics). Colour-coded from light blue (more than 30 km) to dark blue (less than 2,5 km).

This indicator shows the distance to the nearest hospital (including outpatient clinics). This could be one of the indicators that will be part of an index for medical desertification. This index will be formulated and tested throughout AHEAD’s research activities, between October 2021 – May 2022. Eventually, a mouse-over or clicking on a municipality will also present additional information about that municipality, for example, the size of the population, its demographical composition or the percentage of unmet healthcare needs. Also, information from our in-country research will be included as we go along.
