Building a resilient world that leaves no-one behind requires universal social protection and a global fund for social protection

73 per cent of the world’s population lack adequate social protection. Countries with solid social protection systems are also more resilient to any domestic or global shocks. Providing all workers, regardless of their contractual status, with social security, unemployment benefits and access to healthcare is a necessity to tackle the impact of any crisis, and is in line with the ILO Convention 102 on Social Protection. But not all countries have the means to do so. Through a Global Fund for Social Protection, we could close the funding gap for the world’s poorest countries and enable them to set up their own sustainable social protection systems, including universal access to healthcare

Ensuring access to universal social protection and healthcare for all everywhere is essential to build a resilient world!
