What is Cash Plus?

Evidence shows that direct payments of cash, or cash transfers, help the world’s poorest families meet their basic needs and create a wide range of benefits. But cash alone cannot end poverty. New research shows that when cash is combined with other services, like health insurance or livelihood training, the benefits of cash transfers are boosted and their impacts increase. This combination of cash transfers and complementary programmes is called “Cash Plus”, or integrated social protection. Find out about our work on Cash Plus https://www.unicef-irc.org/research/cash-plus/
