This study analyzes the effects of Indonesia's conditional cash transfer program on the local health care market in terms of price, utilization, and quality of care. The CCT program is associated with increased delivery fees and increased utilization of prenatal care and trained attendants for delivery assistance. Consequently, program participants experience improvements in prenatal care quality.
