J-PAL South Asia is launching the Cash Transfers for Child Health (CaTCH) Initiative to fill a gap in research on methods for improving children’s health outcomes. The CaTCH Initiative will help generate rigorous policy-relevant evidence on the design and delivery of unconditional and conditional cash transfer programs to improve program effectiveness.
Central and State governments in India have adopted a financial reform to enhance the delivery of India’s largest social protection program, the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS). These reforms are informed by evidence from J-PAL affiliates' research in Bihar, which found a 24 percent decline in expenditure without a detectable decline in employment or assets created.
