Equity Coverage Frontier

In an attempt to develop realistic and feasible benchmarks for improvements in effective coverage for the most disadvantaged children through reduction of underlying bottlenecks and for resulting improvements in early childhood opportunities, we have developed: “equity coverage frontiers”. Equity coverage frontiers refer to the potential future change in effective coverage of evidence based high impact interventions (health, nutrition and WASH, etc.) in the most disadvantaged populations if the baseline effective coverage of the “least deprived” (defined as either the wealthiest quintile, the best performing province, etc.) in the same country is achieved. This represents country specific medium term benchmarks for a “step-wise” catching up of coverage (as the benchmarks evolve when the most disadvantaged catch up to the previous coverage levels of the richest quintiles.
