Subject of analysis in this paper is the social prevention in the Republic of Macedonia as an important element of the social protection system.
Firstly, the legal basis of the social prevention (parts of the Constitution of the Republic of Macedonia and the Law on Social Protection) will be elaborated, then the presentation will be done to the program concept for social prevention contained in the relevant acts of the state bodies, as well as the planned activities for the purpose of strengthening and promoting the social prevention.
Analytical considerations about the legal and program concept of social prevention in the Republic of Macedonia will be presented as well.
On the one hand, social protection can meet the essential needs of human survival by ensuring that all men and women have basic social and economic security. At the same time, it can play a more far-reaching role in enhancing the quality of life of individuals and societies by developing and unleashing human potential, facilitating structural change, increasing stability, advancing social justice and cohesion, and promoting economic dynamism.
Social protection is about people and families having security in the face of vulnerabilities and contingencies, it is having access to health care, and it is about working in safety. But we are far from realizing the ideal of adequate social protection as a right for all. This is particularly true for the poorest in the informal economy. Commonly they are working and working hard just to survive. They experience many forms of insecurity. They are most in need of support and protection yet they are the least protected.
Socio-economic security is key to the well-being of the individual and the family. By responding to people’s needs, social protection fosters social inclusion and cohesion - secure families are the building blocks of secure communities and stable societies. When properly managed, it is an instrument of empowerment and social progress. It affects capacity to work and productivity at work. Social protection gives poor people a platform to step from fighting for survival to working for a better future and staying out of poverty.
Keywords: social prevention, social risk, social protection law, program.
