Projects promoting healthy behaviors

Finding ways to improve the health and wellbeing of society is one of my passions.

My expertise focuses on improving people’s behaviors and strengthening the healthcare system, advocating for healthier choices and lifestyles, preventing diseases, and enhancing the use and application of new scientific evidence.

Health intervention to promote adherence to treatment and retention in care in HIV patients (2014-2018)

The project examined a health intervention employing mobile message reminders to bolster medication adherence (to antiretroviral therapy), and retention in healthcare among HIV patients in Burkina Faso. The study evaluated a nationally representative sample of patients in a (two-year) long-term randomized controlled trial to understand whether mobile text and image reminders improve bio-physical and psychosocial outcomes. We tested four treatments and one control group across four rounds of survey (baseline, and 6, 12 and 24 months after).

The intervention used digital technology to address behavioral factors affecting adherence and retention, such as forgetfulness, stigma, and present bias. It examined patients in remote and urban regions, assisted health workers, and collaborated with community associations to underscore the importance of timely and continuous treatment.

Our results showed small impacts on primary outcomes (retention, adherence, and physical health) and strong positive effects on psychosocial measures over the two years. These positive impacts on psychosocial wellbeing show the strongest effects in the first six months and slowly decayed over time.

This project was part of my PhD thesis, funded and developed in collaboration with 3ie International Initiative for Impact Evaluation, Erasmus University of Rotterdam, the University of Bobo-Dioulasso, Université Nazi Boni de Bobo-Dioulasso, Institut du Développement Rural (IDR), and the Ministry of Health in Burkina Faso. I am deeply thankful to my supervisor Prof. Natascha Wagner.

Insights to overcome HIV stigma and promote mental health in HIV patients (2014-2018)

This project analyzed the impact of HIV stigma on mental health and overall well-being in Burkina Faso. The exclusion and marginalization that HIV-patients suffer due to the stigmatization may impair their subjective wellbeing, and HIV stigma may be exacerbated in low-prevalence and low-income countries where their conceptualization as “outcasts” and the competition for resources intensify. Thus, this project identified the detrimental effects of stigma and put forward potential strategies and support systems to mitigate it, striving to improve their quality of life towards a more inclusive society.

The research investigated HIV-stigma from two angles (employing the four-round panel dataset in the main health intervention, see health project #1):

First, it assessed HIV-stigma as a negative determinant of good subjective health.

Second, it analysed the predictors of HIV-stigma, and patient-level fixed effects models were employed to minimize the influence of confounding factors.

The results showed that “experiencing stigma” has a negative and statistically significant association with good subjective health (2.3%-points, p-value=0.090). Results also indicated that income, household size and sexual activity are positive predictors of good subjective health, while retention in care associates with lower reports of experiencing stigma.

This project was part of my PhD thesis, funded and developed in collaboration with 3ie International Initiative for Impact Evaluation, Erasmus University of Rotterdam, the University of Bobo-Dioulasso, Université Nazi Boni de Bobo-Dioulasso, Institut du Développement Rural (IDR), and the Ministry of Health in Burkina Faso.

I am thankful to my supervisor Prof. Natascha Wagner.

Strategies to promote the engagement in and use of evaluation findings in global health (2023)

The project designed, implemented, and evaluated strategies to promote the engagement in and utilization of new evaluation findings (i.e., best practices and lessons learned) for the better evidence-based decision making of policy actors in global health and development (more details on request).

The strategies were designed to build and strengthen communication channels, training sessions, and internal operational systems. They included creating common goals, implementing plans and commitment devices, and testing an email communication intervention.

As a leader of the email-based intervention, my team built an email-based intervention tailored to reach two high-level groups of policy actors. By adding links to products with the emails, the intervention examined the effectiveness of three type of text emails integrating social and behavioral insights to improve outcomes: (i) a control message including only a basic personalization feature such as addressing the recipients by their names, (ii) a professional identity message aiming to reinforce the professional mission and duty of the actors, and (iii) a loss aversion message framing the loss of missed opportunities associated with not engaging with the evaluation findings.

The effectiveness of the three communications was examined using two key metrics: (i) email open rates and, (ii) click-through rates on the links directing to the products.

Moreover, the research evaluated three-rounds of data collection with different number of reports in each wave. This design allowed us to measure engagement levels across email conditions that vary by type of message (control, professional identity, and loss framing) and the number of reports shared (1, 2, and 5).

The results showed promising evidence of utilizing behavioral insights within email communication to boost the engagement with evaluation findings for the two populations under study.

The loss framing technique and the the professional identity email message generated the highest engagement results in population #1 and population #2, respectively (as measured by click-through rates). In both cases, the impact of the behavioral techniques are large and stable across the three rounds of the intervention, and it is independent of the number of reports shared. Consistent with the literature, the evidence reflects that sharing a single product caused the best engagement rates overall. The results also showed varying impacts between men and women.

This project is developed for The Palladium Group in collaboration with high-level partners in the international development sector. More information on request.

Restructuration of the health system and hospital facilities in Kazakhstan
(2013-2014)

This project was part of a multidisciplinary effort to strengthen Kazakhstan's healthcare system to ensure its long-term resilience. My responsibilities focused on supporting the modernization and restructuring of hospital facilities and services based on the projections of future medical demands (up to 2050).

My tasks involved supporting the lead consultant in the design of a projection analysis and strategic roadmap for hospital reconfiguration of general and specialized rooms based on demographic health trends, and in recommending ways to optimize resource allocation, purchasing newer health technologies, and streamlining administrative processes.

This project was developed for an international consulting company and local partners.

Projects promoting social & economic inclusion

My expertise focuses on findings ways to ensure that vulnerable groups have an equitable, just and inclusive access to essential socioeconomic services and markets.My work has examined strategies to promote access to decent employment, desired housing, and financial services amongst others. For instance, in these projects
I have directed behavioral tools to help migrant populations, young-job seekers, and women in Africa, Latin America, Europe, and Asia.

Overcoming ethnic discrimination in the Dutch housing market (2018-2020)

The objective of the project was to facilitate the integration of ethnic minorities into the European housing market. This work was important because residential location shapes the quality of education, health, employment, and safety an individual gets; however, research shows historically high and systematic rates of discrimination against ethnic minorities in European markets, including The Netherlands.

My work tested two behavioural tools to mitigate housing discrimination against Turkish and Moroccan descendants in Amsterdam. The study examined whether seeking housing through a secondary and less prominent platform decreased discrimination rates, and whether a positive reference letter from a Dutch landowner (with a native, majority-group name) improved access to housing.

The results showed that using an auxiliary website created for, and designed by, minority groups lessened discrimination, and that attaching a reference letter from a previous landlord did not influence access to housing.

The project concluded that creating and using a specifically tailored platform empowers vulnerable groups by providing a supportive network that promotes inclusivity and social cohesion.

This project was part of my PhD thesis developed for Erasmus University of Rotterdam (here)

Example of reference letter in study

Translation of letterDear Sir,
Through this letter I recommend Mrs. Said Idrissi as a tenant of your living space. I was very satisfied with him as a resident of my living space: clean, quiet and a model tenant. I hope you want to consider renting out your living space to him.
With best regards,

Diagnostic tool and training workshops to promote the financial inclusion of Venezuelans and women in Peru (2023)

This work focused on identifying the key underlying behavioral drivers and causes of discrimination towards Venezuelans and women in the financial system of Peru, aiming to advance strategies to promote their inclusion and to improve the organization’s client-base indicators (more details on request).

The project crafted a diagnostic tool to examine both conscious and unconscious biases within financial managers, risk analysts, executives, and other staff members towards these vulnerable groups. The tool sought to pinpoint causal cognitive, social, and physical barriers that may hindering the access of these minorities to financial services. Strategic recommendations were put forward based on the results of the diagnostic tool.

Furthermore, an intensive 3-day training workshop was delivered to the participants from the local financial institution. The workshops increased awareness and fostered empathy and institutional capabilities in their activities and employee base.

This project was developed for the Social Sustainability and Inclusion team from the World Bank, in collaboration with the International Finance Corporation and other local partners. Deeply thankful to World Bank leader Paula Rossiasco, Lorena Levano and Greta Granados; and my consulting team Prof. Enrique Fatas and Dr. Paulius Yamin.

Insights to enhance helping and punishing behavior (2015-2017)

This project explored insights to improve helping and punishing behavior within modern societies.

By building a natural field experiment in The Netherlands, the study sought to shed light on the underlying cognitive mechanisms driving human cooperation and punishment when interacting with strangers, such as social norms and evolutionary traits.

The findings indicate that subjects are intuitively predisposed to help strangers and become more selfishly as they have more time to think about the potential costs and benefits of helping.

Conversely, deliberation lowers the probability to engage in punishing behavior as the fears of retaliation increase.

This project was part of my PhD thesis developed for Erasmus University of Rotterdam.

Impact evaluations of edutainment initiatives to promote the integration of Venezuelan migrants and women in Latin America (2023 - ongoing)

Several projects are in progress to evaluate the impact of two edutainment initiatives aimed at fostering the social and economic inclusion of Venezuelans and women across Latin America.

These studies aim to understand the effectiveness of using a host of educational and entertainment interventions to mitigate xenophobia, exclusion, and prejudice towards vulnerable groups, by changing perceptions, attitudes, social norms, and behaviors in host societies.

By assessing the cost-effectiveness of edutainment initiatives, these impact evaluations will provide an evidence-based basis for future programs.

These projects are developed for the Social Sustainability and Inclusion team from the World Bank, in collaboration with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), and other international and local partners in South America. Deeply thankful to the World Bank leader Paula Rossiasco, the full World Bank team in Colombia and Peru, and the full impact evaluation team(s) supporting to the evaluations.

Publications: Products will be generated as results are estimated.

Boosting the employment of young job seekers in Costa Rica (2023 - ongoing)

This project promotes the equitable access of young professionals into the competitive labor market of Costa Rica.

Recognizing the multiple challenges faced by the youth, this initiative provides technical advice to a local NGO connecting private companies and recently graduated university students to increase work experience, internships, and future job placement.

By recommending the use of leading social and behavioral insights, the project advances the scope of the NGO’s service and tactical approaches to enhance the retention of students and commercial partners into the program, as well as streamlining its business operations.

This advice will ameliorate the program by putting forward goal-oriented targets, emphasizing social norms among stakeholders, improving communication strategies, and creating more empathy and attractiveness to its mission and relevance for the economy.

Recommendations are developed for a local NGO in Costa Rica.

Insights for the digital financial inclusion of women in India (2023 - ongoing)

A behavioral study is undertaken to ease the access and utilization of digital financial technologies among women and other vulnerable populations in India.

The investigation examines local intricacies and underlying mechanisms influencing the behavior of men and women in the use of digital technologies (i.e., trust, aspiration, expectations, social norms, etc.). The study will uncover culturally nuanced insights to discover challenges and opportunities.

Our purpose is to put forward more effective policy instruments to guide researchers, policymakers, and stakeholders, fostering inclusion and empowerment in such technologies.

This project is developed in collaboration with the Centre for Social and Behaviour Change, Ashoka University (India).

Other projects around the world

As part of my main work I have also steered other projects worldwide.

These projects include: (i) leading a financial accessibility study in a rural Costa Rica, (ii) researching the microbiology laboratory market in Costa Rica, (iii) developing
a global benchmark study of social and economic indexes of countries with
different income levels, and (iv) supervising graduate-level projects.

Financial accessibility study in rural Costa Rica (2011)

In the heart of rural Costa Rica, a financial accessibility study examined the drivers underlying the contrasting realities of two neighboring communities. One community, notably wealthier, stood juxtaposed with the other, facing significant economic disparities.

The primary goal was to identify underlying attitudes and barriers impeding access to financial services and economic development between these communities.

The results found underlying factors such as lower motivations, aspirations, financial literacy, and poor access to credit to develop infrastructure projects and entrepreneurial initiatives.

This project was developed for the Instituto de Políticas para la Sostenibilidad.

Market research on the Costa Rican microbiology laboratory market (2013)

This project developed a study within the microbiology laboratory market in Costa Rica.

This in-depth analysis sought to unravel the intricate web of laboratory chains, products, services, and associated costs, thereby providing a holistic view of the industry dynamics within the local market.

By comparing these dimensions, this market study shed light on the competitive landscape, identifying key players, laboratory studies and reactive offers, market trends, and opportunities for growth.

This resource served as a valuable resource for entrepreneurs and investors looking to navigate the market in Costa Rica, fostering a more informed and efficient evidence-base for decision making.

This project was developed for an international consulting company in Costa Rica.

Book blurps,

“A fascinating journey through the heart of behavioral science for development, where evidence meets impact.”
~ Dr. Chiara Varazzani, Director at the OECD

“Development practitioners often forget that behind the changes needed to advance as a society, there are human beings. And that their behaviors largely condition the outcomes of any development efforts. As the coordinator of the World Bank’s team responding to the Venezuelan massive human exodus, our job is helping Latin American societies to adapt to change, transforming short term challenges into development opportunities. This book is an invaluable resource for us, as it offers the tools, frameworks and experiences that we need to offer the societies we serve comprehensive solutions that drive behavioral change in addition to policy reform and programmatic responses, ensuring lasting and sustainable improvements in the lives of people.”
~ Paula A. Rossiasco, Senior Social Development Specialist, Social Sustainability and Inclusion Global Practice. The World Bank

"In 'Behavioral Science for Development' practitioners, policymakers, and researchers will find a bridge between groundbreaking research on behavioral science and practical solutions. This handbook is an essential guide to discovering and learning from behavioral change initiatives that are enhancing lives around the world."
~ Lorena Lévano Gavidia, Social Sustainability and Inclusion. Latin America and The Caribbean. The World Bank
