We present a 3-level hierarchical model for the location of maternal and perinatal health care facilities in Rio de Janeiro.

The quality of the solutions produced by the procedures we developed do not differ significantly among themselves. The model is also applied to a case study corresponding to real 1995 data of… CONTINUE READING
