We evaluate the long-term impact of Saude Crianca‘s ‘family action plan’ on the well-being of their graduates. The impact of Saude Crianca is measured in two ways. First, results from a recent survey are compared to indicators both at entry and on graduation from Saude Crianca. Second, the evaluators exploit a statistical matching technique with the help of comparable households hospitalized in Hospital Jesus, another public hospital in Rio de Janeiro.
You can read more about the findings of the evaluation in Saude Crianca’s policy brief and the research report.
