The Mam’Out project : unconditional seasonal monetary transfers targeting poor households, to improve access to food and healthcare and to increase the consumption of foods of high nutritional quality by young children

The objective of the Mam’Out project is to measure the impact of seasonal inconditional monetary transfers on food security and the prevention of acute malnutrition in young children. This study was performed in the province of Tapao (Burkina Faso) by a consortium bringing together Action contre la faim, Universiteit Gent (Belgium), AgroParisTech (France) and the Institut de recherche en sciences de la santé (Burkina Faso). This study showed that the money transferred was mostly used to buy food and to pay for household healthcare, and that the nutritional quality of the food consumed by the children benefiting from this programme was higher than that consumed by the controls. The children benefiting from this programme ate more foods of animal origin and had higher intakes of lipids and vitamin B12. The findings of this study were communicated to NGOs, governments and international organisations.
