Implementing Nigeria's Master Facility List: Manual for Public Access to the Health Facility Registry Abstract:

The Health Facility Registry (HFR) is a customized, open source, web-based application that allows users to access the Master Facility List (MFL): a list of all healthcare facilities, public and private, in Nigeria. In addition to government stakeholders who oversee facility management and the provision of healthcare services, additional stakeholders who may be interested include the authorities responsible for budgeting and allocation, human resource managers, those overseeing supply chain management, insurance companies, researchers assessing health system performance, and donors planning coverage for public health interventions. The system requires Internet connectivity to be accessed and is available to the general public.

The purpose of this manual is to provide a broad overview of the functions of the system that are available to anyone who is interested in querying the MFL. A complementary manual for HFR administrators reviews the additional functions required for curating the MFL, including adding new facilities, modifying records for existing facilities, and signaling the closure of facilities.
