ILO Social Protection Platform

Short description
The ILO Social Protection Platform replaces the former Global Extension of Social Security (GESS) Platform. It is the International Labour Office’s global knowledge sharing tool to extend social protection including health protection.

The platform aims to facilitate the exchange of information and ideas, capture and document experiences, identify knowledge gaps and facilitate the creation of knowledge through the promotion of innovation. To achieve this goal, the Social Protection Platform relies on the contributions of its users and the dialogue and exchanges between them.
