CISS Social Security Week 2024

CISS celebrates another edition of Social Security Week with a program that includes a wide range of topics, from childhood awareness to the impact of mental health and population ageing on social security systems. The objective is to disseminate social security to generate interest in the public and instil the notion that social security is a universal human right inherent to each person, thus paving the way towards a future of well-being for the entire hemisphere. This initiative was born during the XXV General Assembly of the CISS (Guatemala City, 2009), in which the states were invited to decree the last week of April as Social Security Week. The Guatemala Declaration, endorsed by WHO, PAHO, OAS, IOM, and the UN High Commissioner, emerged from that meeting.
