    The Workers Compensation Fund (WCF) of Tanzania leads the Occupational Health and Safety (OSH) insurance branch. It requested SOCIEUX+ to enhance its internal capacities to deal with rehabilitation of workers affected by work-related injuries and/or sickness. In the course of four training activities experts mobilized by the German Association of Accident Insurance (DGUV) provided to WCF staff an introduction on rehabilitation management, tackled procedures case managers have to deploy, and strengthened WCF and its partners’ knowledge in the field of labour medicine. The four training activities involved WCF technical and administrative staff as well as staff from collaborative medical facilities and touched up several OSH-related areas such as legislative framework, case management, medical notions, communication to right-holders. The activities progressively identified gaps and proposed recommendations for further action.

    Description
    The Pension and Family Benefits Fund for State Agents (CPPF) of Gabon shared with SOCIEUX+ its intention to expand the package of benefits available to its right-holders, namely State agents, by including insurance coverage for professional accidents and diseases State agents may run into in the deployment of the statutory functions. In that perspective, mobilized public experts from France and Luxembourg have first established an inventory of the existing system of coverage of risks linked to occupational diseases and accidents at work of Gabonese public officials, then drafted normative texts that can duly amend the scope of the system of benefits provided by CPPF, for extending coverage to occupational safety and health risks.

    The SOCIEUX+ contribution was mainly directed to uphold the current, joint Government of Malawi – ILO efforts towards the establishment of the Workers Compensation Scheme for Malawi. The Government of Malawi has embarked on the process of establishing a social insurance-based employment injury insurance system through the Workers Compensation Fund. The system is to replace the existing employer-liability system and functions on the basis of risk pooling. This reform entails the development of a system that mandatorily collects appropriate premiums from all employers and provides compensation towards injured workers from a Government-managed fund.
