Implementing Nigeria's Master Facility List: Manual for the Administration of the Health Facility Registry Abstract:

The Health Facility Registry 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 that are available to administrators of the system who will add new facilities, modify records for existing facilities, and signal the closure of facilities. In addition, we will provide an overview of the workflows for the verification, validation, and publication of these requests. A complementary manual is available for public, nonadministrative users who want to query the MFL: “Implementing Nigeria’s Master Facility List: Manual for Public Access to the Health Facility Registry.”
