World Social Security Forum




Take part in this global campaign promoting how social security protects people.

The World Social Security Forum (WSSF) 2019 has the theme Protecting people in a changing world. Building up to the WSSF, the International Social Security Association (ISSA) invites its members, partners and anyone who believes in the importance of social security to share stories about how social security protects people in a world marked by rapid technological, demographic and economic change.

In particular, we would like to highlight the role of social security institutions.

Did you know that the 321 ISSA member institutions in 156 countries provide social protection to more than 3 billion people?

Share your stories through social media and other channels, videos, photos, interviews and other means of communication.

The ISSA aims to integrate strong stories from the campaign into the WSSF programme.

We take care of you
