COnditiOnal Cash transfers (CCts) are prOgrams that transfer cash, generally to poor households, on the condition that those households make prespecified investments in the human capital of their children. health and nutrition conditions generally require periodic checkups, growth monitoring, and vaccinations for children less than 5 years of age; perinatal care for mothers and attendance by mothers at periodic health information talks. education conditions usually include school enrollment, attendance on 80–85 percent of school days, and occasionally some measure of performance. most CCt programs transfer the money to the mother of the household or to the student in some circumstances.
