THEME:Linking Economic Policies and job Creation Initiatives to Social Security  Development in East and Central Africa. 

The conference is organized by East and Central Africa Social Security Association (ECASSA) and hosted by its Tanzanian member institutions through the leadership of Tanzania Social Security Association (TSSA).  The ECASSA member institutions in Tanzania are:  National Social Security Fund (NSSF), National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF), Social Security Regulatory Authority (SSRA), PPF Pensions Fund, GEPF Retirement Benefits Scheme, Public Service Pensions Fund (PSPF), and LAPF Pensions Fund. Chief Guest to the Conference is expected to be the President of the United Republic of Tanzania. 

In recognition of rampant challenges facing our youth and other workforce in the active age due to high levels of un/(der)employment in the region that ultimately denies majority of our people the access to adequate Social Security, this year’s ECASSA Policy Makers Conference will articulate the theme titled “Linking Economic Policies and job Creation Initiatives to Social Security Development in East and Central Africa”.
