Comprehensive evaluation of the Pro Kind home visiting program: a summary of results

Abstract

"This paper provides an overview of the German home visiting program Pro Kind. We conducted a RCT to assess the program effects. A total of 755 women with multiple risk factors were recruited; of those, 394 were assigned to the treatment group. We assessed program influences on family environment, maternal and child health, and child development until the child's third birthday in regular interviews, with developmental tests, and in dental examinations. We found small benefits on, e.g., parental self-efficacy, feelings of attachment, social support, and maternal oral health. Further, home visiting is significantly associated with increased second births." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
