The number of insurance-holder workers in Myanmar has crossed 1.4 million from 700,000 on 1 April, 2014 after the enactment of the Social Security Law 2012. The SSB has carried out reforms to facilitate insurance-holder workers’ access to healthcare services and financial benefits, in keeping with the law, with the ILO’s technical assistance.
The SSB has carried out the ILO-Korea project in the information and technology sector, the ILO-Luxembourg project in the healthcare services sector, the ILO-Vision Zero Fund project in the management sector, and the ILO-Labour Law Reform project in the legal sector. The SSB has also implemented e-services for social welfare payments and payout of social benefits.—Thant Zaw (Translated by TTN)
