Project Description

India has a large network of savings and credit based Self-Help-Groups (SHGs), connecting over 35 million women (NABARD, 2008). SHG members are highly driven and connected individuals which has motivated several NGOs to work with them to improve development outcomes. A collaborative programme between the Government of Telangana (GoT) and the Unviersity of Liverpool (UoL) seeks to understand the real value in mobilising these groups to improve health outcomes at the population level. Using a cluster randomised design, SHGs will either carry out their usual financial activities or receive an additional programme designed to enhance their health outcomes. Supervised by Dr S Garikipati, the successful student will use cutting-edge impact evaluation theory and methods to support design, implementation and analysis of a large scale development project.
