Social Development

The OAS is committed to improving the quality of lives of the peoples of the Americas through its work aimed at providing greater opportunities for its citizens. Unfortunately, deep inequalities continue to exist in many of the countries of the region. In response, the Organization develops and implements social protection and inclusion policies and social development programs that give priority to those living in conditions of poverty and vulnerability in society. The OAS supports member states on their multilateral efforts addressing these challenges and on the fulfillment of the mandates received by the relevant political forums, specially those referring to the promotion and strengthening of horizontal cooperation.
