Financial Education and Intimate Partner Violence: Evidence from Colombia during COVID-19

This project seeks to contribute new evidence on IPV prevention by evaluating the impact of an interactive WhatsApp-based couples communication, financial education, and Covid-19 information program targeting minimum-wage households in Colombia receiving pre-existing monetary subsidies during the Covid-19 emergency. Evidence on an effective behavioral intervention that can mitigate violence in the short-term while laying the base for financial resiliency could serve as a model for both the current and future crises.
