The Ehsaas Program is the World’s Best Anti-Poverty Initiative: Stanford University

The Ehsaas Program has been dubbed the international standard for the establishment of a progressive welfare state by Stanford University’s Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSIIS).

Ehsaas Program is a world-leading anti-poverty initiative to uplift the most vulnerable individuals, according to a working paper titled “Frameworks for a Developmental Welfare State: Lessons From Pakistan’s Ehsaas Program.”

The Ehsaas Program was introduced in 2018 by the Pakistani government, which is led by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). The initiative aims to combat the nation’s poverty through a comprehensive and integrated approach.


The Ehsaas Program offers a range of services. Unconditional cash transfers, specialised subsidies, and expanded health and nutritional coverage are a few of these programmes.

Policymakers from all across the world can benefit from the Ehsaas Program’s lessons on policy, programmatic, and reform implementation, including the value of strong institutions, effective data and technology use, and adopting an integrated and inclusive strategy to combat poverty.

The working paper stated that while the Ehsaas Program’s services are effective, open, and efficient, they also aid in closing the gap between the government and its population.
