Coronavirus – Social Security Responses

On these pages, the International Social Security Association (ISSA) provides information on how social security contributes to addressing the economic and social consequences of the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

The outbreak and spread of the new coronavirus is not only a health crisis. Governments and international organizations are today taking rapid steps to mitigate against the economic and social impact of COVID-19. Building on the experiences of the financial crisis from 2007, social security is a key part of this response.

Through the Coronavirus news monitor, the ISSA keeps you up to date with international media reports on a broad range of social security measures. In addition, the ISSA shares its analyses of these measures in articles on this website. For updates on the coronavirus disease and outbreak, please visit the website of World Health Organization: WHO updates

If your institution is implementing crisis response measures, please share this information with us at: issacomm@ilo.org.
