Maternal and Early Child Support grant 
 
Pregnancy can exacerbate pre-existing vulnerabilities in certain populations by lowering education and employment opportunities, increasing needs and heightening dependency. CHP is contributing research to offer maternity and early child support grants as a mechanism for giving children the best possible start in life, for reducing inequities stemming from pregnancy and for alleviating family poverty. This work provides a unique opportunity for interventions over a brief period which could have massive impacts and synergies beyond compare. 

The lead researcher is Associate Professor Matthew Chersich: matthew.chersich@wits.ac.za
