The transition strategy, implemented in phases between 2009 and 2013, was backed by planning that began in 2005 and received $100 million in funding.

The second, by Amie Shei at Analysis Group, a strategy consulting firm in Boston, is titled "Brazil's Conditional Cash Transfer Program Associated With Declines In Infant Mortality Rates."
