This is a protocol for a systematic review

Abstract

This is the protocol for a systematic review which focuses on evidence on the differential impact of transferring unearned assets (particularly cash and credit) to women and men in low- and middle-income countries. The impact of interest in this review is family well-being, which encompasses a broad range of indicators including health, education, employment and income of the various members of a household and of the household as a whole. The protocol provides background information and details of the methods to be used.

The review has been published:The impact of economic resource transfers to women versus men: a systematic review
