The Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognizes everyone’s right to social security, and there is a growing consensus about the benefits that good social protection coverage can provide.
Yet, global estimates show that only a fraction of the population has adequate social protection coverage. Countries around the world are engaged in debate over how they can best adapt their social protection systems to meet the needs of ageing populations, the demands of globalization and changes in economic and employment conditions. The training activities of the Centre strengthen the capacity of ILO constituents and other ILO stakeholders to take part in this debate and to develop concrete strategies and approaches to promote access to social protection for all.
The course will identify inequities in effective access to health care and their main causes, review the importance of universal access to health care in crisis and post-crisis situations, issues related to the feasibility of introducing a social health protection scheme and planning for implementation, designing appropriate contribution levels and benefits, monitoring the provision of services and ensuring the sound governance and financing of the scheme.
