Social networks and access to CVD preventive care in El Salvador

Objective: This project aims at evaluating whether social networks can enhance the impact that traditional cash transfer programs have on accessing a preventive consultation for cardiovascular health.

Description: In collaboration with LSE, we are conducting a RCT where we evaluate different forms of incentives (financial and social) on access to preventive consultations. The project is currently ongoing with an expected end date of June 2020.
