Abstract: This paper investigates the impacts of Bolsa Família program on children aged 0-6 immunization in Brazil and its regions. Bolsa Familia is a conditional cash transfer program. One of its conditionalities is the children attendance to the immunization calendar ruled by Health Ministry. The evaluation method is Propensity Score Matching. We use data from a survey conducted in 2005 to evaluate the program - Pesquisa de Avaliação de Impacto do Programa Bolsa Família. The main findings suggest that Bolsa Familia program do not affect immunization status.
