ONE. HUMAN DEVELOPMENT POLICY


Since 2016, the Government of Mongolia has taken measures to improve the social security system, increase citizens' incomes, and improve the quality of life.


Within the framework of the “Healthy Mongolian” goal, the “Healthy Liver” and “Healthy Teeth-Healthy Child” programs were implemented. A legal environment has been created to finance the cost of medicines for children under five from the health insurance fund. Every child has the opportunity to attend kindergarten, and all schools have been transferred to two shifts. For the first time, the Law on Youth Development was adopted and implemented to support the development of families, children, youth and people with special needs (disabilities).


The “Stay-at-Home Moms with Salary” program is being implemented. According to the number of children born and raised, the period for mothers to pay social insurance is increased by 1.5 years. Increased pensions for low-income seniors and narrowed the gap.


The retirement age for herders has been lowered by 5 years, and a legal environment has been created for herders and self-employed people to reimburse their social insurance premiums once. Twice a year, we give “Age Endowment” to our elders. The government passed a law on one-time repayment of loans secured by pensions, and canceled loans for the elderly. One million MNT worth of securities will be given to the elderly who do not have pension loans.


We will continue and expand all our successful programs over the next four years. The social insurance system will be radically reformed and a gradual transition to a unified savings fund system will be made.
