The project aims to test whether well-designed and targeted financial incentives can succeed in changing hard-to-change behaviours; in this case using maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) services.
The study is a cluster randomised controlled trial located in Siaya County, a rural district in Western Kenya. The intervention being tested is a conditional cash transfer to women each time they attend their health appointments for ANC, facility birth and postnatal care visits until their newborns reach 1 year of age.
