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 Beijing and Shanghai, China. Data were collected from 1,500 individuals ages 18 or older in each city, for a total of 3,000 respondents. Information was collected from respondents through computer-assisted personal interviews (CAPI). Data were collected about demographics, health history and status, health behaviors, health care use, and knowledge, attitudes and practices regarding CVD, risk factors, and CVD care.
