In addition to the generality of mandatory health coverage for non-paid workers, the second phase of this massive workshop will begin in 2022, with the goal of widening the base of beneficiaries to include vulnerable and impoverished groups now covered by the “RAMED” system.
Simultaneously, measures will be taken to gradually generalize family allowances through the implementation of a unified social registry, with a special focus on the inclusion of people with disabilities, as well as making gender equality one of the government’s top priorities in various economic and social fields.
Third, human capital rehabilitation entails taking the required steps to enable the public school to fulfill its dual mission of knowledge transfer and social advancement.
