Muhammad Farhan Majid’s abstract “Do Minimum Wage Laws Impact Child Growth? Evidence from Developing Countries” has been accepted by the International Health Economics Association. Their 11th World Congress in Health Economics will take place in Milan, Italy from July 12-15.

The presentation will explore the conclusions of the research which suggest that an increase in minimum wage as well as minimum wage laws in general result in adverse effects on child health and the work status of mothers in lower income countries.
