The HeartRescue Global Project, a multi-country, multi-year effort aims to improve access and quality for acute cardiovascular disease (CVD), including ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in selected locations in China, India, and Brazil. This dataset is the product of a HeartRescue program impact evaluation. It includes results of a baseline health facility and emergency medical services (EMS) survey conducted in Vitória da Conquista, Brazil. Data were collected from three private hospitals, one public hospital, and one EMS unit. Data were collected about facility capacity, equipment availability, pharmaceutical and supply stocks, staffing, and services provided. The data were collected through computer-assisted personal interviews (CAPI).
