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. Three datasets resulting from the ABCE project in Kenya are available for download: results of a nationally representative facility survey which gathered information on services offered, expenditure, revenue, personnel by category, and other variables related to facility operations; data collected in patient exit interviews conducted after patients visited facilities in the ABCE sample; and information extracted from the charts of HIV-positive patients receiving antiretroviral therapy (ART). Clinical chart extraction data and patient exit interview data can be linked to facility-level information from the ABCE Facility Survey.
