The Children’s Health and Education Mapping Tool


Read our blog published in Health Affairs about the Children’s Health and Education Mapping Tool:

This tool leverages our latest National School-Based Health Care Census data and Geographic Information System (GIS) technology to give you an interactive look at the intersection of school-based health centers (SBHCs) and high-need areas. This tool is especially helpful for SBHC sponsors, practitioners, and advocates, as well as child and adolescent health researchers, policymakers, and supporters. You’ll be able to identify and target geographic areas for new or expanded health services, learn about SBHC characteristics, and help address the inequities that lead to poor health, wellbeing, and student achievement outcomes for children and adolescents.

What can the tool do?

  • Support the expansion of the school-based health care model by identifying geographic areas where adverse child and adolescent health outcomes intersect with key social determinants of health
  • Provide information about nearby SBHCs to aid in collaboration and improve quality of care

School-Based Health Alliance staff developed this tool in partnership with colleagues from HealthLandscape and with support from several funders.
