The National Hospital Survey reports on the operability of medical equipment in public hospitals in Venezuela. Since the Health Ministry has not published data in 3 years, the Hospital Survey has become the main source of information about the crisis of the health system.

Problems and Purpose

The National Hospital Survey provides information on the quality of medical equipment in Venezuela's largest public hospitals.

Background History and Context

The organizing NGO, Doctors for Health, started in 2014 as an information network of health workers all across the country. The network was conceived in response to the increasing amount of wounded citizens arriving to hospitals during a wave of civil protests. As the civil unrest receded, the network continued as a digital platform for the purpose of sharing information about the state of the health system and published its first results by the end of 2014.

Since then, the National Hospital Survey has been published 5 more times, reporting on the operability of medical equipment in 40 of the biggest public hospitals in the country. The initiative is recognized and supported by the Venezuelan National Assembly and diverse Medical Associations. Given that the National Health Ministry has not published any official data in the last 3 years, the Hospital Survey has become the go-to source of information about the crisis of the health system in Venezuela for organizations abroad and for citizens in the country.

Organizing, Supporting, and Funding Entities

The National Hospital Survey is carried out by the Venezuelan civil society organization, Doctors for Health.
