Vaccination is a cost-effective strategy for conferring immunity against a host of preventable diseases, however, rates of timely childhood vaccinations remain inadequate in resource-limited settings. We propose to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of mHealth-assisted conditional cash transfers as a means of overcoming individual barriers to timely vaccinations. The study will form the basis for a pragmatic randomized controlled trial of the efficacy and cost-effectiveness ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether cash transfers (conditional and unconditional) can improve health and social outcomes amongst children living in vulnerable households in Manicaland, eastern Zimbabwe. The study hypotheses are: 1. Cash transfers will increase the percentage of vulnerable children aged 0-4 years with a birth certificate. 2. Cash transfers will increase the percentage of vulnerable children aged 0-4 years with up-to-date vac...
It has been estimated that increasing the use of skilled care during childbirth could prevent up to 1.5 million maternal and newborn deaths and stillbirths by 2025. Conditional cash transfer programs, in which women receive cash payments conditioned on the use of maternal health services, are increasingly being used as a mechanism to increase uptake. In this study, the investigators randomly assign households to receive varying cash amounts conditioned on uptake of recommended ...
This study assesses the sustainability of impacts, 4 years post-program, from a pilot safety net program that was implemented from May 2012-April 2014. The intervention, called the Transfer Modality Research Initiative (TMRI), was assigned following a cluster-randomized controlled trial design in two zones of Bangladesh (north and south). Intervention arms were assigned at the village level, where arms were as follows: (1) cash transfers [north and south]; (2) cash transfers + ...
The investigators aim to evaluate the efficacy of a cash transfer and nutrition education program delivered by community health assistants to increase dietary diversity among children 6 to 23 months of age in Grand Gedeh County, Liberia.
1. Determine the "dose-response" relationship between a cash transfer amount and HIV viral suppression at 6 months 2. Identify the most effective cash transfer size to increase the proportion of people living with HIV infection (PLHIV) retained in care and with suppressed viral load (
Like many developing countries, Pakistan faces a public health challenge of low and incomplete immunization rates of children, only 54% of children aged 12 to 24 months are fully immunized, which leaves children susceptible to vaccine-preventable diseases. The Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) is a low-cost and effective health intervention, but the uptake is low, delayed, and completion rates are poor. Door-to-door campaigns can increase coverage, but are extremely expen...
Cash transfer, aims to strengthen food security for vulnerable households by giving families enough purchasing power to consume an adequate and balanced diet, maintain a good standard of hygiene, access health services, and invest in their own means of food production in addition to their children's growth and development. While cash transfer to vulnerable households has shown a long-term positive impact on growth and on malnutrition-related mortality in children aged 0-5 year...
Antenatal care (ANC), facility delivery and postnatal care (PNC) are proven strategies that can tackle the high burden of maternal and child mortality and morbidity currently witnessed in sub-Saharan Africa. However very few pregnant women utilize these services. This study aims to assess the impact, cost-effectiveness, and scalability of conditional cash transfers (CCTs) to promote increased and uninterrupted contact between pregnant women and the formal healthcare system in S...
Cryopreservation of all embryos and transferring them subsequently in assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycles to improve outcome.
This study has two phases. It will be conducted in one site in CT only. Phase I is to enumerate interest in PrEP uptake among young South African women exposed to a culturally-appropriate social marketing campaign. This enumeration will also serve as a recruitment strategy for a cohort with open-label PrEP access in Phase II. The cohort will assess PrEP acceptability and adherence among 200 HIV-uninfected young women who are offered open-label daily oral PrEP and randomized to ...
This evaluation is part of a five country project to evaluate the benefits and costs of the use of two alternatives to food transfers: vouchers and cash (hereafter referred to as "alternative modalities"). The project will generate information on how outcomes such as household food expenditure and dietary diversity, relevant to both beneficiaries and WFP, change following the introduction of these alternative modalities; how benefits and costs of these are, relative to food tra...
In the last two decades, cash transfer (CT) programs have emerged as a popular approach to long-term poverty alleviation. While the main goal of cash transfer programs is to reduce poverty, they also have the potential to improve many development outcomes, such as health and education. While many studies, mainly in Latin America and Asia, have investigated the impacts of CTs on poverty and food security and have, for the most part, found positive impacts, less is known a...
This study evaluates the impact of additional cash and nutritional counselling on nutrition outcomes in pregnant women and children up to the age of two years in CT-OVC (cash transfer- orphan and vulnerable children) households in Kitui and Machakos counties of Kenya. The control arm households will receive their normal CT-OVC cash payment and the intervention arm will receive an additional cash payment and nutritional counselling.
This pilot study will test the effect of a cash transfer program aiming to improve family food consumption patterns, family health and schooling, with resulting benefits for childhood growth and cognition.
This randomized pilot trial studies how well a mobile health (mHealth) intervention works in increasing human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination among college students at the Ohio State University. mHealth educational intervention may communicate information about HPV vaccination and increase HPV vaccine uptake in college students.
This study will primarily investigate the impacts of a one-time unconditional cash transfer on the well-being of recently homeless individuals. Secondary research questions will examine the impact of personal coaching for cash recipients and the impact of a workshop and coaching intervention for non-cash recipients.
Controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) enhances the efficacy of ART (Assisted reproductive technology) by permitting multiple-oocyte yields, but also alters endometrial receptivity (ER) by an advancement of endometrial development which contributes to diminished pregnancy chances. Previous reports suggest that pregnancy rates are increased following deferred frozen embryo transfers. In addition as compared to fresh embryo transfers, frozen embryo transfers seem to be associated w...
The transfer of patients from the intensive care unit (ICU) to a medical or surgical hospital ward is a particularly high risk transfer that may expose patients to complications or adverse events if there are communication breakdowns between sending and receiving medical teams. Current dictation practice often falls short in producing optimal clinical documentation on patients being transferred from the ICU to the ward. The use of an electronic transfer of care tool to standard...
The timeliness of routine childhood immunization should be an important component in measuring vaccination coverage rates especially in LMIC countries like Nigeria, yet this is overlooked. This study will determine the age- specific immunization timely uptake rates for the various vaccines covered in the routine childhood immunization and seek out factors that affect timely vaccine uptake among Nigerian children.
This is a mailed survey to persons who served as living kidney donors at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. The experimental component of this study (the clinical trial) is a randomized trial of two monetary incentives for the living kidney donors invited to participate in the study. Kidney donors will be randomized to receive one of two incentives in the mailed survey packet: $2 cash vs. $5 cash. The main outcome measure is the response rate to the survey.
