National Social Protection Strategy
It is the first National Social Protection Strategy of the Government, forming an important part of the planning process of the government to ensure that public resources are directed to addressing the challenges of poverty and vulnerability that the country has to face. The purpose of the Strategy is to establish the main priorities for the development of a social protection policy and its reform in the next 5 years (2013-2017); and guide the establishment of a sustainable, comprehensive and integral social protection. This implies the strengthening and integration of a large number of policies and programs, including social safety nets, social welfare, and social insurance and labor market policies. The Long-term Strategy establishes the framework for sustainable and comprehensive social protection for all citizens against risks, shocks and vulnerabilities that lead to chronic deficiency. The first phase of the reform of social protection focuses on consolidating and strengthening the social safety net, in order to ensure that resources aimed at addressing the most vulnerable have the desired impact.
