HealthRise is a collaborative multicountry initiative to implement and evaluate innovative community-based programs intended to improve heart disease and diabetes care in underserved communities. Conducted as part of HealthRise South Africa, this health facility survey was carried out at 86 facilities in Umgungundlovu district in KwaZulu-Natal province and Pixley ka Seme district in Northern Cape province. The survey was based on based on the WHO package of essential NCD interventions and South Africa’s Essential Medicine List and Standard Treatment Guidelines for Primary Health Care 2014. It was adapted from a questionnaire created for the Access, Bottlenecks, Costs, and Equity (ABCE) study. 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).
