Toolkit for Implementing the Health Facility Registry in Nigeria

Toolkit for Implementing the Health Facility Registry in Nigeria

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, other stakeholders who may want information from the MFL are 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 MFL system requires Internet connectivity to be accessed and is available to the public. 

MEASURE Evaluation, a project funded by the United States Agency for International Development and the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, produced the tools presented here for anyone in Nigeria who wants to access the HFR, for public health authorities who will be granted administrative rights to the HFR, and for developers who will be responsible for maintaining the HFR in the future.
