Digitalization to leverage extension of social security coverage in West Africa

Based on sustained government commitment and development of institutional capacities, social security in West Africa has made important progress over the past decade through strengthening both legal frameworks and administrative structures. However, large segments of the population, and in particular workers in the informal sector, remain without social security coverage. The ISSA Technical seminar on digitalization to leverage extension of social security coverage in West Africa will take place in Accra, Ghana, 2−3 October 2023. It is organized back-to-back with the opening ceremony of the ISSA Liaison Office for West Africa, to be hosted by the Social Security and National Insurance Trust of Ghana.
