ESCWA is organizing the second “Beirut Social Protection Peer Exchange Meeting: Extending Social Insurance to Persons in Non-Standard Forms of Work”, bringing together social protection experts from the Arab Region, as well as from Argentina, Chile and South Africa.

The objectives of the meeting are to familiarize participants with international good practices and lessons learned on the effective extension of health and income-replacement benefits to workers in informal and irregular employment and to non-employed persons, as well as the extension of short-term social insurance benefits to temporary, seasonal and casual workers, small-scale self-employed and domestic workers.

Experiences of how to address common bottlenecks in implementing universal health and social insurance coverage shared from the Arab region, Argentina, Chile and South Africa are being reviewed.
