The Access, Bottlenecks, Costs, and Equity (ABCE) project is a multipronged and multicountry research collaboration focused on understanding what drives and hinders health service provision. Two datasets resulting from the ABCE project in the Indian state of Gujarat are available for download. This first contains results of a health facility survey which gathered information on services offered, expenditure, revenue, personnel by category, equipment, capacity, vaccines, and other variables related to facility operations. In total, a nationally representative sample of 103 facilities were surveyed. Data were collected through interviews of health providers, direct observation of facility areas, and assisted observation of facility resources. The second dataset includes information collected in patient exit interviews conducted after patients visited facilities in the ABCE sample.
