What is Social Protection?

Single Registry

Different countries call their systems and registries in different ways depending on their historical trajectory. Depending on the country, the term ‘Single Registry’ has been used as a synonym of Social Registry, or Integrated Beneficiary Registry – both components of an Integrated Information System for Social Protection.
