Economic development necessitates a healthy and well-educated population to stimulate productivity, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

Duke Center for International Development researchers study the impact of social and environmental factors such as infrastructure and property rights on household economic decisions. Researchers in this space also focus on the delivery of social, educational and health services that best allow citizens of emerging markets to prosper, including access to health insurance, preventative medicine, general education and vocational training. Critically, scholars in this space study both national and subnational decisions and trade-offs within the family, the most fundamental of economic units.
