The Muhanna Foundation invites ISSA members to onsite Diploma training courses in Arabic.
This course will focus on the challenge of extending full access to social security coverage to ensure universal access for all citizens, regardless of their living and working situation. The international best-practice guidelines identify administrative solutions to improve access to social security, with a particular focus on populations that are difficult to cover.
This is one of six ISSA Diploma training courses run in partnership with the Muhanna Foundation in 2024, offered in Arabic in a face-to-face format.
Training course: ISSA Guidelines on Administrative Solutions for Coverage Extension.
Training institution: The Muhanna Foundation
Training venue: Amman, Jordan
Training period: 19–23 May 2024
Region: Open to all ISSA member institutions
The ISSA Guidelines on Administrative Solutions for Coverage Extension aim at strengthening the capacities of social security administrations to deliver effective contributory programmes and to work towards the extension of coverage to groups that are typically difficult to cover such as self-employed workers, workers encapsulated by the concept of the missing middle, migrant workers, and domestic workers, who are often engaged in the informal economy, and workers in the agricultural and fisheries sectors. The course will explore different measures to extend coverage, e.g. cost-effective registrations systems, communication strategies and formulating a citizen-centred service delivery plan.
Who can participate?
The training course is designed for social security professionals of ISSA member institutions who have a professional interest in the application of the ISSA Guidelines on Administrative Solutions for Coverage Extension.
Course learning materials and tuition will be offered in Arabic.
