BR-T1423 : Early Institutionalization In Brazil

Project Status: Approved

The objective of this project is to provide definitive scientific evidence on the best form of care for children in state care in São Paulo, Brazil. With that objective in mind, the Early Institutionalization Intervention Impact Project (EI-3) will: (a) Establish an innovative Enhanced Foster Care (EFC) service, and (b) Test whether EFC achieves better outcomes for children than Enhanced Institutional Care (EIC) through a randomized control trial (RCT) and cost benefit study. The results from this research will be informative to policy-makers across the LAC region. IDB technical cooperation resources will help finance the implementation of the project, complementing PSG resources from the Fundacion Maria Cecilia Souto Vidigal (currently as counterpart funding in the budget). Evaluation activities are financed by other funders including Lumos Foundation and Instituto Pensi.
