Essays in Health and Labor Economics

Haile, Beliyou Astatike

This dissertation consists of three essays. The first essay analyzes the causal effect of HIV education and incentives (home-based HIV testing and conditional cash transfer) on HIV testing decision. The second essay analyzes the short- and medium-term causal effects of HIV testing on HIV infection expectations and sexual behavior. These two essays are based on data from a randomized controlled trial in Ethiopia. The third essay examines effects of wrongful discharge protections adopted by U.S. state courts on employment and job loss for workers with different ethnicity, race, and education level.
