A Master Facility List (MFL) is a complete listing of all health facilities found in a particular country, including both public and private facilities. Each facility listed on the MFL is assigned a unique identifier code called the MFL Code.

The purpose of the MFL is to act as a central and authoritative repository of information for all facilities found in a country. Some information found in the MFL includes:
