Clinical Research Forum

A paper written by three CHIBE-affiliated members and their colleagues was recognized by a Top 10 Clinical Research Achievement Award by the Clinical Research Forum.

The effects of cash transfers on adult and child mortality in low- and middle-income countries” was written by Aaron Richterman, Christophe Millien, Elizabeth F. Bair, Gregory Jerome, Jean Christophe Dimitri Suffrin, Jere R. Behrman and Harsha Thirumurthy.
