How Geographic Information Systems Help Countries Develop and Maintain Master Facility Lists Abstract:

An accurate, geo-referenced facility list is a crucial tool for the health sector to be able to offer effective services in the areas where there is the greatest potential to achieve control of the HIV epidemic. MEASURE Evaluation has provided global leadership on this issue and has on-the-ground experience working with countries to build national master facility lists (MFLs). An MFL is the keystone for integrating health information from different actors, programs, and monitoring systems. It is crucial that there be a clear plan for governance issues such as updating and sharing data. Through technical assistance, MEASURE Evaluation addresses both technical issues related to data schemas and governance issues that control updates and use of such lists.
