This report presents a comprehensive profile of social protection in Mauritania. It covers pensions, health care, cash transfers, and food and energy subsidies, as well as other social insurance and social assistance programmes in place in the country.

The report then discusses the challenges facing the social protection system in Mauritania, including low coverage, fragmentation and lack of targeting. The health system has seen considerable improvements in recent years, but lack of support for the poorest and supply problems in rural areas still impede the achievement of universal coverage.
