Healthy Moms, Healthy Babies: Safe Motherhood Alliance

Commitment by

New Incentives

In 2012, New Incentives committed to launching the Healthy Moms, Healthy Babies: Safe Motherhood Alliance to provide conditional cash transfers to 1,000 women in Nigeria in exchange for healthy prenatal and delivery behaviors. Participation in this program will enable pregnant women to earn a monthly stipend conditional upon prenatal checkups, adequate nutrition, antiretroviral adherence, and delivery with skilled birth attendants. New Incentives will partner with local organizations to identify and engage with the participants and to monitor progress. Through this commitment, pregnant mothers will be able to ensure safe delivery of their children without risking starvation or sacrificing other essential expenditures for their household.
