Conditional cash transfer
Child and family allowances
Description of programme
Provide income transfers to households in extreme and moderate poverty, conditional on visits to health centres, school attendance of children, and registration.
Monthly household transfer is US$17 plus a school attendance transfer of US$4.5 for every child between the ages of 6 and 16, up to 4. For a family with four children, the transfers are equivalent to 20% of household expenditure and 40% of food expenditure.
Promote the human capital of households in poverty, and guarantee the exercise of their rights
