CHIBE Scientific Director Dr. Alison Buttenheim and Associate Director Dr. Harsha Thirumurth launched the Behavioral Economics and Global Health Insights (BEGIN) Lab. The BEGIN Lab seeks innovative solutions to persistent challenges that limit healthy lifespans globally. In pursuit of these solutions, the BEGIN Lab and its collaborators design and evaluate behavioral, structural, and policy interventions that have the potential to improve health outcomes. The overarching goal of the BEGIN Lab is to change behavior, impact policy, and end epidemics. Ongoing projects are taking place in partnership with researchers and organizations in several countries in Africa, South Asia, and Latin America.
