This formative evaluation, covering the period 2018-2020, seeks to guide UNICEF and its partners on how to scale-up the pilot phase of this program in the short to medium-term (at least up to 2022).

Its purpose is to (1) generate evidence and recommendations on the perceived use of the program and its effect on the lives of the beneficiaries, (2) assess how well the program is embedded within national and local policies and service delivery mechanisms, (3) document direct and indirect, intended and unintended consequences of the program and conditions for success to capitalize on, and (4) highlight gaps between policy and implementation.
