Behavioral Science for Disease Prevention and Health Care
We study ways to improve the effectiveness of health systems by infusing insights about human behavior into the design and delivery of care and health messaging. We aim to create health systems that engender trust and encourage individuals to seek essential care and engage in preventive health behaviors.
We focus on three major research areas:
- Prevention of cardiovascular diseases in South and Southeast Asia
- Improving the effectiveness of health insurance for vulnerable populations in India
- Communicating health advice and information to the public in an age of misinformation and low trust in science
