Achieving universal health coverage is enshrined in the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals. Formalising the informal economy is a recommendation for social and employment policies, making the extension of social protection to the informal economy and vulnerable populations a high priority. The EU-funded Research, Network and Support Facility has compiled development projects to analyse good practices and lessons learned on this topic. A workshop involving public institutions, researchers, international and civil society organisations was held and resulted in the publication of a book of recommendations. This session will present and discuss the latest research outcomes, addressing the inequality of access to social services, the redistributive policies, inclusiveness, non-discrimination of vulnerable populations, and the urban/rural divide.
