Role of Social Protection in Responding to the COVID19 pandemic

COVID-19 is a global health emergency with immediate as well as longer-term social and economic implications. Human rights based social protection measures represent a critical tool for facilitating access to health care, protecting people against poverty and ensuring the satisfaction of basic economic and social rights, and contributing to the realization of Sustainable Development Goals 1 (target 1.3) and 3 (target 3.8).
