Article Reference Troff document (with manpage macros) As Good as the Networks They Keep?: Improving Outcomes through Weak Ties in Rural Uganda
We examine an intervention randomized at the village level in which female farmers invited to a single training session were randomly paired with farmers whom they did not know and encouraged to share new agricultural information throughout the growing season for a recently adopted cash crop. We show that the intervention significantly increased the productivity of all farmers except those who were already in the highest quintile of productivity and that there were significant spillovers in productivity to male farmers.

Article Reference Troff document (with manpage macros)Reforming medical education admission and training in low- and middle-income countries: who gets admitted and why it matters
Recent studies reveal public-sector healthcare providers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) are frequently absent from work, solicit informal payments for service delivery, and engage in disrespectful or abusive treatment of patients. While extrinsic factors may foster and facilitate these negative practices, it is not often feasible to alter the external environment in low-resource settings. In contrast, healthcare professionals with strong intrinsic motivation and a desire to serve the needs of their community are less likely to engage in these negative behaviors and may draw upon internal incentives to deliver a high quality of care. Reforming medical education admission and training practices in LMICs is one promising strategy for increasing the prevalence of medical professionals with strong intrinsic motivation.
