Main challenges to social inclusion

 

By Resolution No. 466 of 21 August 2017 the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Bulgaria adopted an Action Plan for the period 2017-2018 for the implementation of the National Strategy for Poverty Reduction and Promotion of Social Inclusion 2020. An Action Plan was subsequently adopted for the period 2017-2018 for the implementation of the National Strategy for Poverty Reduction and Promotion of Social Inclusion 2020.

The Ministry of Labor and Social Policy (MLSP) is also developing Strategic Plan by 2021, which states that within the period up to 2021 the vision for the development of the policy on social inclusion as a multisectoral policy will be directed towards taking focused and purposeful actions to achieve long-term priorities and goals for guaranteeing the rights of all children, ensuring equal access to quality social services and deinstitutionalization. An important element in this area remains the promotion of social inclusion and the reduction of poverty among vulnerable groups of population. The main strategic tasks will be to improve policy formulation, implementation and coordination in order to achieve national targets to improve the system of guaranteeing the rights of all children with a view to effectively supporting children and families; continuing the process of deinstitutionalization of childcare and implementation of the National Long-Term Care Strategy, as well as promoting social inclusion.
