The project requires students who are part of a health organisation and are in a position to conduct surveys and/or economic experiments in their organisation.

The broad objective of the proposed project is to increase understanding of attitude towards health, healthcare and health behaviour of patients and providers. The overarching question that we would like to answer is how to improve health of our citizens, and how we can apply the insights from behavioural economics to achieve this outcome.
