Impact of conditional cash transfers on enrolment in community-based health insurance among female-headed households in south Gondar zone, Amhara region, Ethiopia

Ethiopia has been implementing its flagship social protection programme, Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP), since 2005, mainly in drought prone and chronically food insecure woredas. In 2011, the country also launched Community-Based Health Insurance (CBHI). However, the two large-scale social protection programmes are not integrated well. This study examines the impact of participation in the conditional cash transfer (CCT) component of the PSNP (Public Works or PW) on enrolment in the CBHI among female-headed households in Amhara region.
