New Incentives is a charity that works in North West Nigeria to increase the uptake of routine immunizations through conditional cash transfers.
New Incentives has been a GiveWell top-rated charity since 2020. GiveWell estimates that New Incentives can vaccinate an infant at a cost of about $142, and that a donation to New Incentives has an average cost-effectiveness of $4,500 per life saved. (The cost of incentivizing a caregiver to complete a baby's immunization schedule is much lower than the cost of saving a life because a small fraction of children who receive immunization would otherwise have died from the diseases that immunization confers protection against, and because of other factors.)
As of May 2022, New Incentives has received over $26 million in funding from Open Philanthropy, and is also featured in The Life You Can Save's list of "best charities".
