The Effect of Cash Transfers on Intimate Partner Violence
Health & PsychologyTanzania
For my dissertation, I am leveraging an NIH funded cluster-randomized trial conducted by Dr. McCoy investigating the impact of cash transfers on HIV outcomes in Tanzania to examine how intimate partner violence is affected by financial incentives. Dr. McCoy’s study will be launched in 32 clinics (n=1,984) in February 2020. Clinics will be randomized 1:1 to receive the standard of care or a 6-month cash transfer, conditional on clinic attendance, for patients initiating antiretroviral therapy. I propose to conduct additional data collection and an intent-to-treat analysis to measure the effect of cash on intimate partner violence among HIV-positive women.
