What can cash transfers achieve?

At a brown-bag lunch for DFID research teams in London and (by video link up) Scotland, Dr Lori Heise presented on social protection schemes and cash transfers.

In her presentation, Dr Heise assesses the impact that cash transfers have in reducing sexually transmitted Infections and HIV risk amongst sexually active populations, and analysing evidence of cash acting as an incentive to discourage risky sexual behaviour. She also examines research into the capacity of cash transfers to reduce intimate partner violence (IPV).
