Evaluations and Research

This study is an intervention trial that aims to estimate the impact of the Graduating to Resilience activity on child development in Uganda. Researchers revisited a sample of households enrolled in the Graduating to Resilience trial conducted in Uganda in 2019–2021 and assessed children born during the intervention.

The target sample was composed of 1,688 households residing in 57 study villages. Eligibility for the sample was restricted to households enrolled in Arm 1, Arm 2, and Spillover Control. Researchers used two instruments to measure child development: Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development (BSID) and Caregiver Reported Early Development Instruments (CREDI). Between September 14 and November 9, 2022, Innovations for Poverty Action conducted a follow-up survey and interviewed 1,503 caregiver-child dyads, 507 dyads from Arm 1, 520 from Arm 2, and 476 from Spillover Control.
