The socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in developing countries


Collaboration with Technical University of Munich in Germany and Monash University in Australia

The global pandemic of COVID-19 has paralysed the globe over the last few months. The lockdown and social distancing have resulted in business closure and disruption to informal economic activities bringing the livelihood of millions of people, particularly those in the low-income groups, to a halt.

We are collecting socioeconomic and public health data to understand:

  • 1. The short and medium-term effects of lockdown and social distancing measures on the physical and mental health of men and women within the family.
  • 2. The effect on lives and livelihood with a particular focus on women and children.
  • 3. Compliance with social distancing and other recommended health practices following information campaigns over the phone.
  • 4. Understand the long-term effects of completed randomized evaluations on interactions with COVID-19 responses.
