2021/09/16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
A Department of Global Health and Population Brown Bag Seminar, featuring Eeshani Kandpal, a World Bank economist.
Kandpal is an economist in the Development Research Group of the World Bank. Her research examines two types of financial incentives: (1) cash transfers to poor households and (2) pay-for-performance contracts with health workers and facilities to improve the provision of primary health care. She is interested in design elements like the targeting mechanisms of cash transfers and optimal pricing regimes for health service delivery as well as spillovers from incomplete contracts or targeting methods.
