The World Health Mapper, a free web-based mapping and data visualization tool developled by HealthLandscape, can help family physicians gain a deeper understanding of global health issues, and gain specific insights on population health indicators that are important to them.
The World Health Mapper allows users to visualize data related to demographics, vital statistics, child and infant health, disease prevalence, and healthcare capacity and expenditures for countries across the world in the form of maps, charts, and graphs.
