Abstract This consultation document is a contribution to the assignment that the International Labour Conference bestowed on the ILO, namely to launch a global campaign for the extension of social security for all. It is hoped that the document will stimulate a wide debate between all parties concerned as to how to provide some form of social security to the majority of the world's populations and to ensure that the human right to social security can be made a reality in the shortest possible time. Contents: definition of social protection; financing of social protection; coverage of social protection and access to health services; ILO strategy for achieving universal coverage in social health protection.
