Modernize social security measures to benefit insured workers

Article

The harmonious tripartite collaboration among the government, the employers and the employees aims to emerge peaceful and tranquil workplaces in accord with the existing labour laws with planning to develop the nation.
The Ministry of Labour is joining hands with regional and international organizations in managing labour affairs while creating the chances for employees to have entitlement mentioned in the labour law, ensure worksite safety, seek proper jobs, arrange safe migration, giving training to workers to have skills, provide social protection as well as healthcare services to the employees.
The social security project covers 1.13 million insured workers from 116 countries with healthcare services and issuance of compensation and cash assistance. To be able to provide healthcare services, the SSB established three workers’ hospitals, 78 branches of the board, 96 township clinics, one traditional medicine clinic and 57 departmental clinics.
Moreover, the SSB cooperates with private clinics and signed agreements with them to implement the free-for-service payment-PPS system by observing the systems of social security boards abroad. In this regard, the free-for-payment system is being implemented to run 12 social security clinics and 24 SSB clinics through capitation payment. To be able to give services to workers, the SSB should be modernized with better essence.
The entitlements of insured workers attract all employees at various levels. But, the SSB should arrange a smooth process for the issuance of cash assistance to insured pregnant female workers when they gave birth under the rules of the SSB. It is necessary to issue cash assistance which is one of the entitlements for insured workers without delay.
Moreover, the board should remove the red tape process in the issuance of cash assistance and other entitlements to the insured workers. Achieving success for an organization needs a smooth process to give services to the people as well as those from specific societies. All work processes should be eased, and responsible officials need to analyze the status of the organizations to catch up the modernity. If so, such organizations will sustain their positions with success.

Actually, Myanmar’s SSB is a real service organization for insured workers as well as all entire workers. In its chronicle, the SSB has been sustaining good records and successes in improving the socio-economic life of the workers including insured employees. Hence, the organization should give priority to serving the interests of the workers forever.
