DESK REVIEW | 08.02.01.02. Payments (cash transfers)

The Keluarga Harapan Program (PKH) is a conditional cash transfer programme which is put in place for the very poor families. The programme was not specifically for unpaid caregivers of people with dementia as it focuses on reducing inter-generational poverty in the long-term by investing in children’s health and education, with a “top-up” feature if the family has an older member living with them. The program was also designed to absorb the scheme for older people (Asistensi Sosial Lanjut Usia/ASLUT) in 2017 (Kartika et al., 2019).
