What is social security?

Social security policies and programs aim to meet those needs of the population, which, if not addressed, can slow and even exacerbate the development of society. The ILO defines social security as “Social security is the protection that a society provides to individuals and households to ensure access to health care and to guarantee income security, particularly in cases of old age, unemployment, sickness, invalidity, work injury, maternity or loss of a breadwinner.”

An international consensus has been reached on viewing social security as an inalienable human right. Social security is mentioned as a right in Article 22 of the International Bill of Human Rights, which clearly states that “Everyone, as a member of society, has the right to social security and is entitled to realization, through national effort and international co-operation and in accordance with the organization and resources of each State, of the economic, social and cultural rights indispensable for his dignity and the free development of his personality.”
