New Incentives is a charity that works in North West Nigeria to increase the uptake of routine immunizations through conditional cash transfers.


As of December 2021, 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 (GiveWell 2020; GiveWell 2021a; GiveWell 2021b). (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 which immunization confers protection against, and because of other factors (GiveWell 2021c).)

New Incentives has been a GiveWell top-rated charity since 2020 (GiveWell 2020b). New Incentives is also featured in The Life You Can Save's list of "best charities" (The Life You Can Save 2021).
