In 2013, the Institute of Labour Science and Social Affairs (ILSSA), under the aegis of Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) conducted a research study to compile the National Report on Social Protection for women and girls in Viet Nam. UN Women, Viet Nam supported this pioneering effort towards creating a significant reference document on gender equality and women’s protection for policy makers and administrators. The study aimed to identify gender specific concerns and challenges in the current social security protection system, assess the implementation of social security policies for women and girls in accordance with Resolution 15 and Resolution 701, to forecast the results for the 2014 to 2020 period and to propose recommendations to enhance women and girls’ participation and benefits under Viet Nam’s social security system.
This document is a presentation of the summary of the key findings that have emerged from the study. It is being disseminated amongst key stakeholders with the prime objective of continuing to seek opinions on the subject of increasing inclusion of women and girls in the social protection system. It is expected to help take forward the implementation of Resolutions 70 and 15 of the Government of Viet Nam to the year 2020, and contribute to and be a part of the National Report on Social Security, which is expected to be released in 2014.
