Effect of Information on Service Delivery in Rural India
Not Provided

A lack of public awareness about entitled health and social services may contribute to poor delivery of services in developing countries. We sought to determine the impact of educating villagers about entitled services.

105 gram panchayats (village clusters) were randomized to receive information about their guaranteed health, education, and village governance rights. We then selected households within each treatment and control village to assess whether the information had made an impact.
