    Non-compliance with the Bolsa Família Program conditionalities PT EN ES FR

    WWP – 12/2014

    Children and adolescents with low school attendance and with their vaccination schedules out of date, as well as pregnant women who have failed to undertake antenatal check-ups, signal to the authorities that these beneficiaries are having difficulties in accessing the health and education services. They fail to comply with Bolsa Familia’s commitments in the areas of health and education. This text describes how non-compliance with the conditionalities is currently dealt with by the Program and outlines the consequences for the cash transfers to these families: warning, blocking, suspension and cancellation.

    Results and impacts of the Bolsa Família Program education conditionalities PT EN ES FR

    WWP – 12/2014

    The document shows the results and impacts of the education conditionalities of the Bolsa Família Program in recent years. Evidence suggests that the Program leads to reduced grade repetition of beneficiary students. They also have higher pass rates in the final years of primary education as well as at the high school level. The results suggest that a change has occurred in the course of these students’ school careers, thus signaling a consequent reduction of educational inequality in Brazil.

It  summarizes general characteristics and history of Brazil’s Unified Registry (Cadastro Único). Its main difference from most targeted registries around the world is that income is declared by families themselves. It also investigates the role of the national public bank, Caixa Econômica Federal, in developing and maintaining Unified Registry’s systems and databases.
