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 household survey conducted in Vitória da Conquista, Brazil. An adult age 30 years or older was interviewed from each eligible household. Topics covered in the interview included demographic and household characteristics; healthcare use and access; health knowledge, attitudes, and practices related to CVD health; CVD risk factors; and participants' health histories. In total, data were collected from 1,054 households.
