Strengths and weaknesses

This indicator does not describe the geographic location or distribution of service outlets.
This indicator does not consider the quality of service provision, which would require more in-depth evaluation efforts like facility surveys. This is not a complete measure of coverage, as there is no denominator of total facilities. This does not account for non-USG supported service outlets.
