  6. Evaluation of the operations of the Social Security Board, Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security of Myanmar

    12 June 2015

    The Social Security Board (SSB) was created in 1956 after the adoption of the Social Security Act, 1954. The SSB has 77 township offices covering 110 townships (i.e. 30% of the existing townships). It is present in all States and regions to the exception of Chin State. In 2012, the Government of the Union of Myanmar adopted a new Social Security Law, 2012. This new law provides for an extended social security system.

  7. Extending the network of health care facilities of the Social Security Board in Myanmar

    12 June 2015

    The International Labour Organization (ILO) in Myanmar supports the Social Security Board, Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social security, to revise and implement the new Social Security Law, 2012. The SSB currently runs a Social Health Insurance scheme and provides directly health services to the workers via a network of 93 SSB clinics and 3 Workers' hospitals. Since the number of workers joining the scheme is increasing, the SSB wishes to expand the number of health facilities to provide quality healthcare services to the enrolled workers, which also corresponds to the provisions of the new law. To do so, it will be necessary to put in place a Purchaser Provider Split (PPS) – i.e. a separation of the purchaser and the provider that will allow the SSB to provide medical care to its beneficiaries in both its own medical facilities and other external facilities, public or private.
