2021 Annual Report

Vision

We envision a world in which no child dies from a vaccine-preventable disease.

Mission

We are on a mission to implement evidence-based programming to save lives in a manner that does the most good per dollar.

Work

We provide small cash incentives to caregivers in northern Nigeria in order to increase childhood vaccination rates.
There were 844,000 under-five deaths in Nigeria in 2021, and up to 40% of deaths prior to the age of in Nigeria are from diseases that are preventable through vaccination. This means that every 93 seconds, a child under the age of five dies from a vaccine-preventable disease.
Nigeria is home to just 2.6% of the world’s population, yet it accounts for 16% of the world’s mortality of children under five.
At 114 deaths per 1,000 live births, Nigeria’s under-five mortality rate is the second highest in the world.
Every 18 seconds, a baby enrolled in
New Incentives received a life-saving vaccine.

Learning and Growing

At New Incentives, we build tracking and verification into everything we do and promote a culture of critical thinking and healthy skepticism. Here’s a snapshot of some of the areas we are continually monitoring and working to improve.

11%

Disbursement Days with Stockouts

We constantly monitor when required vaccines aren’t available at a clinic for a disbursement day (when immunizations and cash transfers are distributed). We are continually contributing to improved coordination among vaccine supply and cold chain partners for stocking vaccines at zonal, state, and local levels.

5%

Duplicate Enrollments

We use biometrics to prevent and identify cases of caregivers enrolling the same infant multiple times in the program. This number represents the percentage that was flagged by an algorithm and manually confirmed in clinics nearby or up to 20km away.

3%

Clinics with Suspected Issues

A total of 15-20% of disbursement days are visited by managers and internal field auditors. Almost all of these visits are unannounced to help ensure that clinic staff and New Incentives - All Babies Are Equal field officers don’t change their behavior.
