MPRC Seminar: Behavioral Response to Information? Circumcision, Information, and HIV Prevention

Description:
Rebecca L. Thornton, Assistant Professor, Department of Economics, University of Michigan About the Talk: Understanding behavioral responses to changes in actual or perceived risk is important particularly in the context of public health interventions where risk reduction goals can be undermined by risk compensating behavior. We build on the existing literature by examining the behavioral responses by men to an information campaign in which they learn new information about HIV risk. In a sample of approximately 900 circumcised and 300 uncircumcised men living in rural Malawi, we randomly disseminated information about HIV risk and male circumcision and measured behavioral responses one year later. {Will appear in FYI on Nov 21, 2012
