Study Summary

This trial will test whether giving cash to families of school-age children protects them from adversities and improves neurodevelopment. In this trial, supplemental cash transfer will be used to treat inflammation. No patients will receive a placebo. This is because supplemental cash transfer has previously been approved by the FDA for a different condition.
