SENEGAL-SOCIAL PROTECTION: The General Delegate for Social Protection and National Solidarity takes stock

More than a million households benefited from food assistance during Covid-19, and 186 billion 950 million CFA francs were invested in the social grants program, according to Aminata Sow. In this interview, the Déléguée générale à la protection sociale et la solidarité nationale (General Delegate for Social Protection and National Solidarity) gives a glowing assessment of her company’s performance. Despite the convincing results achieved since 2012, the sector is experiencing a number of difficulties, particularly on the legal front, where the Loi d’orientation de la protection sociale (Social Protection Orientation Law) is still being finalized. Added to this is the question of financing, which remains a hindrance to the sector.
