Baseline Survey Report of Kenya’s Inua Jamii 70 Years and Above Cash Transfer Programme

The purpose of this baseline study is to describe the status of people aged between 65 and 75  in Kenya prior to the start of the universal pension programme and, as such, serve as the basis for assessing the potential impact of the pension scheme on older men and women and their households. This study also provides information that can be used to assess the suitability of the control group as a valid counterfactual for an impact evaluation. The baseline survey for the Inua Jamii 70 years and above cash transfer programme presented in this report was realized through a partnership between the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection, the World Food Programme (WFP), the International Labour Organization (ILO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), HelpAge International Kenya, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and Development Pathways.
