Strengthening Health Information Systems in Nigeria—Developing a Master Facility List Abstract:

MEASURE Evaluation, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development, has been working in Nigeria since 2005 to improve the availability of high-quality data to support decision making at all levels of the health system. An important part of this has been MEASURE Evaluation’s work to support the Department of Health Planning, Research and Statistics of Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Health to develop a master facility list to improve data quality and ultimately lead to better coordination of health services.

This fact sheet superimposes on the HISSM depictions of MEASURE Evaluation’s activities in the enabling environment and information generation areas to support HIS performance. By displaying these key interventions across the HISSM, we see their strategic interaction, and how this combination of interventions works together to strengthen data quality and data use at all levels of the health system. The table lists additional MEASURE Evaluation activities that support HIS strengthening that accompanied development of the MFL and HFR.
