The Behavioral Economics in Global Health Working Group organized by Paul Gertler (Haas School of Business), William Dow (School of Public Health), Dana Carney (Psychology & Business), and Schachar Kariv (Economics), explores why individuals systematically make health decisions that are not in their best interest. The group brings together experts from behavioral economics, psychology, public health, development economics, and business to identify innovative tools for solving persistent health challenges both in the US and the developing world. Each semester, Berkeley will host a one-day Conference on Behavioral Health Economics. The conference will feature outside speakers and presentations of completed and on-going research.
