Economic Strengthening Interventions Among Caregivers in Sub-Saharan Africa: Underlying Mechanisms of Its Effects

Tuesday, September 27, 2022 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Join Leyla Karimli as she discusses the results of several studies, completed in collaboration with colleagues from ICHAD, UCLA, University of Chicago, and the University of Antwerp, aimed at understanding the specific mechanisms (e.g., improved access to assets by caregivers, expanded social support, reduced household poverty, improved parenting) through which economic strengthening interventions can affect children’s well-being.

This program is presented in partnership with the International Center for Child Health and Development (ICHAD).

Register online to receive Zoom information on the morning of the event. You can also join us during the live stream.
