Conducted in India, this study assessed a ‘Team-Based Goals and Incentives’ intervention aimed to enhance frontline (community health) worker (FLW) performance and promote healthier behaviors. The results revealed a significant rise in antenatal home visits and iron-folic acid tablet ingestion, along with progress in teamwork among FLWs. Changes in other health behaviors were non-significant.
