Save The Children UK, who produced the map, explains:

The index measures not only how many health workers there are, but also their reach and impact. It shows that children living in the bottom 20 countries — which fall below the WHO minimum threshold of just over two health workers for every thousand people – are five times more likely to die than those further up the index.
