The World Bank in collaboration with DFID and the UK Consortium on AIDS and International Development launched an evaluation exercise in 2009 to assess the results achieved by community responses to HIV and AIDS. The primary objective of this effort is to build a more robust pool of evidence on the impact and added value of community-based activities and actions. This Brief, one of a series from different African countries, outlines the findings in Burkina Faso of a study on orphans and children made vulnerable by HIV. The study looked at the effects of conditional versus unconditional cash transfers on school enrollment and school attendance, and the impact of the gender of the recipient of the transfer.
