Health Facility Assessment (HFA) Paper Tools

The Health Facility Assessment (HFA) resources are systematically developed to assess service readiness for small and sick newborn care. Co-design of the HFA was facilitated by NEST360, working with African governments and in partnership with United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and other key experts.

Electronic data collection tools (REDCap), data cleaning scripts, automated reporting scripts, shell reports and training materials will soon be made available. If you require any of these items now, please contact
