Programme Description:

Risks in Social Security organizations are a constant possibility of adverse events that limit or prevent to achieve the objectives as planned, which affect the population. These adverse situations test their continuity and may reduce their responsiveness to external occurrences such as: epidemiological or social events, economic, demographic, technological, and political changes. They may also experience internal operational or financial problems including the availability of critical human talent.

Given these scenarios, risk management tools are very useful for institutions to manage uncertainty and react to changes.

Social Security specialists execute planning and prevention exercises in the event of eventualities that include their effects; this helps not to affect coverage and quality of services. This also provides them with a contextualized, logical and systemic approach that support them.

This course will help to produce scenarios to improve decisions and reduce risks in the organization and methodologies applicable to Social Security institutions. It provides elements to understand monitoring, supervision and evaluation of measures for an ideal risk management.
