2008 External evaluation of Oportunidades. Ten years of interventions in rural areas (1997-2007)
The Human Development Programme Opportunidades in Mexico is a large scale initiative that provided incentives to low-income people for investing in the human capital of their children. This report presents a qualitative, quantitative, impact and process evaluation of the Programme, with a particular emphasis on the shortcomings and the results after 10 years of interventions and the gender and ethnic differences in the use of Oportunidades among beneficiaries. The report consists of 4 volumes, drafted by a multidisciplinary team of experts. Volume 1 and more significantly 2 directly address nutrition issues.
Volume I : Education and work-related results for young beneficiaries (education, nutrition, cognitive and scholastic development, analysis of risk behaviour)
Volume II : Health and nutrition (service quality, service use by beneficiaries and impact results)
Volume III : Quality of education services
Volume IV : Operations and process of the programme
