Performs the mapping of health facilities through a tool known as geo-referencing. The theoretical framework is based on the conceptions of Cecilio, Merhy, Bodstein, Hartz, Mendes, Buss and others; finds methodological support in Minayo and analyzes the results starting from concepts of the Levefre on the collective subject discourse. The results were 72 mapped Health Units: 01 the General Hospital, 01 Center Reference Maternal and Child, 03 Mixed Units, 03 Centers for Psycho-Social Care, 02 Polyclinics, 01 Health Center, 01 Health Post, 24 Basic Units Health, 33 Family Health Teams and 03 Units of the Family. The organization follows the principles established by the Health System, Nova Iguaçu operationalized its health activities mainly in primary care through the strategy of family health.

It concludes by identifying the geographic spacing of the health network itself, and an outline of the coverage area of the units, one realizes that strategies are needed to adapt, training and hierarchy of the network, to use the momentum of references and cross-references, activities characteristic of planning health, and that also is being developed by the nurse, when she occupies the position of manager. As a contribution, brings the information collected in the reference guide for tracking referrals between the health units.
