Social protection

Real life, real challenges, real protection: Life stories of worker-beneficiaries and experiences in social protection availment

This document features eight stories of people’s experiences with social protection coverage. Contrary to the usual approach of examining project effectiveness, this document takes a people-centred approach as it examines social protection coverage from the perspective of people who availed, were not able to avail, or are still in the process availing of social security and socialized healthcare benefits.

This document intends to provide salient and experience-based information with the objective of enhancing the manner in which social protection mechanisms are programmed, especially during periods of disaster response and recovery. This document is envisioned to help configure and develop more responsive social protection processing that corresponds to the actual realities of post-disaster development assistance.
