Legacy Maternal and Child Cash Transfer Endline Evaluation: Key findings

The Legacy Maternal and Child Cash Transfer (MCCT) was funded by the Livelihoods and Food Security Fund from January 2016 to April 2019. The MCCT aimed to improve nutrition outcomes for mothers and children through the delivery of nutrition-sensitive cash transfers to pregnant women during the First 1,000 days. The MCCT covered 11,588 women in 338 villages across three Townships in Mandalay and Magway regions (Pakokku, Yesagyo, and Mahlaing), where 26% of under-five-year-old children are stunted.  

To produce evidence that can inform nutrition policy, Save the Children partnered with Innovations for Poverty Action to implement a Randomized Control Trial (RCT) that measured the causal impact of the MCCT on the health and nutrition outcomes of target beneficiaries. This document presents a summary of the key findings of the randomized trial.
