Results and Impact Graduate students from UC Berkeley attended a lecture about Rwanda's PFP program given by Professor Sergio Bautista (co-investigator of the Rwanda Project) in the Global Health Policy Subject lead by Dr. Stefano Bertozzi. Before the in-class lecture, they were able to watch a 20 minute video that gave an overview of the theory of PFP programs. The course was policy-focused, economic theory, and also tilt towards the policy debate. The lecture sparked questions and discussion afterwards, and the students and they reported increased interest in related subject areas and the Rwanda Project.
