Conditional cash transfers (CCTs) are a poverty reduction strategy, often used to incentivize healthy or desired behaviors, generally related to health (e.g. treatment adherence) and education. The implications for selecting conditionalities and implementing CCTs are deceptively complicated. This session features Omar Galaraga, Carleigh Krubiner, and Ferdinando Regalia who will discuss the ethical considerations for selecting conditionalities and other practical design issues. Speakers will also provide examples from their work in a variety of diverse settings.
