Cash plus and nutrition outcomes
CARE compared the outcomes of two projects–one with cash transfers and one without–for the outcomes for children and Pregnant and Lactating Women. The children in the project with cash transfers and complementary nutritional support had better outcomes than the children whose families did not receive cash transfers. For Pregnant and Lactating Women the results were contrary. The study draws on monitoring data and raises more questions on how to use cash transfers to best contribute to nutrition outcomes for different populations.
