House Calls: Understanding and Reducing the Impact of COVID-19 on Women in Rural India

EPOD India at KREA University is leveraging an ongoing randomized controlled trial to evaluate two questions: (1) Are women and children deferring routine medical care? Are poor rural households able to access medical care during the pandemic? What social assistance programs are poor rural households aware of and accessing during the pandemic? What are the barriers to accessing health and social services? (2) Does targeted information on health resource availability and disease prevention practices, delivered through a trusted phone-based service, improve utilization of care, receipt of social assistance, and COVID-related attitudes and behavior?
