All Babies Are Equal Initiative (the Nigerian entity of US organization, New Incentives) was incorporated by the Corporate Affairs Commission as a Non-governmental organization (NGO) and its work is focused on demand creation for routine immunization in Nigeria through conditional cash transfers and awareness creation. The organizational goal is to save lives cost effectively by increasing immunization coverage in the North West Nigerian States of Katsina, Zamfara and Jigawa. New Incentives - All Babies Are Equal Initiative is one of the most cost-effective charities in the world.
The conditional cash transfers for routine immunization intervention includes supply side review, sensitization, verification for vaccination received, awareness creation, and a cash transfer of N500 for the first four mandatory immunization visits and N2,000 for the 5th immunization visit to caregivers of infants. A randomized controlled trial (RCT) found strong evidence that the program significantly increases vaccination rates. Additionally, the organization engages in support for routine immunization systems in collaboration with governmental and non-governmental organizations.
