According to bank provided information, the proposed intervention is an AfDB loan of EUR 87 million to the Kingdom of Morocco to finance the first phase of the Support Programme for the Generalisation of Social Coverage (PAGCS). This is a sector budget support operation whose main objective is to support the Moroccan government in implementing its programme to bolster and consolidate the foundations of the 'Social State', in particular, by expanding social protection while improving governance and the efficiency of the system. Therefore, the program lays the foundations for completing the structural reforms aimed at making the social protection system much more inclusive and sustainable, and these reforms will complement the major investments in health infrastructure supported by the Bank. PAGCS will be implemented in 2022/2023 through a self-standing programme-based operation. This operation will be followed by a second phase in 2023.
The goal of PAGCS is to contribute to social protection system reforms in Morocco to increase social coverage of the population. Its main objective is to support the Moroccan government in its Programme and to bolster and consolidate the foundations of the 'Social State', in particular, by expanding social protection while improving governance and the efficiency of the system.
