Re: Social protection to protect and promote nutrition

Only 20% of the world population has adequate social security coverage, and more than half has none. These people are exposed to risks in the workplace and benefit from inadequate or non-existent health care and social security.
This coverage regards a wide range of possibilities: minimum income in case of need, medical care, sickness, old age and disability, unemployment, accidents at work, maternity leave, family responsibility, and death. There will also be many activities designed to improve the social protection of migrant workers.
It is very interesting and positive that various international organizations join forces and knowledge to deal with synergy a global problem such as nutrition. I believe that this congerence (ICN2) will draw new ideas and policies for the development of disadvantaged countries and territories.
