CEGA Initiative - Psychology and Economics of Poverty

Psychology and Economics of Poverty

Motivation

CEGA’s Psychology and Economics of Poverty (PEP) Collaborative was launched in 2018 to accelerate our understanding of how poverty affects cognition as well as mental health, reproductive health, and early childhood development outcomes, with a focus on low- and middle-income countries. We are further interested in understanding how individual biases (on the part of patients and providers) impact health outcomes. Priorities for the PEP research community are to 1) foster the incorporation of poverty-relevant psychological concepts within economics research and ultimately economic policy; 2) adapt existing psychological scales and instruments for low-resource settings; and 3) undertake collaborative field work that advance the poverty-focused research agenda in both economics and psychology. Findings will deepen the evidence base on the psychology of decision-making and inspire actionable policy solutions.
