HealthRise is a collaborative multicountry initiative to implement and evaluate innovative community-based programs intended to improve heart disease and diabetes care in underserved communities. Conducted as part of HealthRise Brazil, this household survey was carried out in approximately 2,000 households in Padre Paraíso in the state of Minas Gerais and Poções in the state of Bahia. Data were collected regarding sociodemographic background, risk factors, medical history, and knowledge, attitudes, and practices related to NCDs. Anthropometric data, including height, weight, and abdominal circumference were also collected, in addition to blood pressure and random blood glucose (RBG) measurements. The data were collected through computer-assisted personal interviews (CAPI) with one adult age 30 years or older in each household.
