Donwload OSM data
Larger OSM datasets can be downloaded from Geofabrik here Select the .osm.pbf file of the country you want to study.
Once the OSM data has downloaded, navigate to the ./data folder where the .osm.pbf file is located and set up OSRM:
docker run -t -dv "$PWD:/data" osrm/osrm-backend osrm-extract -p /opt/car.lua /data/ethiopia-latest.osm.pbf docker run -t -v "$PWD:/data" osrm/osrm-backend osrm-contract /data/ethiopia-latest.osm.pbf docker run -t -i -p 5000:5000 -v $PWD:/data osrm/osrm-backend osrm-routed --algorithm ch /data/ethiopia-latest.osrm docker run -p 9966:9966 osrm/osrm-frontend open 'http://127.0.0.1:9966'

Facebook HRSL data
The 30m population high-resolution settlement layer for Ethiopia (in .geotiff format) can be downloaded here.
The dataset for the hospital dataset can be found here. The files which were used in in this demonstration are saved in this repo under /data/ethiopia/raw. We divided the dataset into one with all the hospitals and one with health centers.
Important: Some of the locations in the HRSL and hopsital data were not covered by the OSM data downloaded from the link above. This can lead to errors from OSRM when queried. As such, the entries outside our OSM data were removed from the hospital and healthcare center dataset.
