Mongolia social services ranked as among best in Asia PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 21 May 2008
ImageNew rankings by the Asian Development Bank places Mongolia among the top four of 31 Asian countries providing social services such as health care and education to its population. 

In releasing its Social Protection Index (SPI), Asian Development Bank officials noted they evaluated a wide range of social programs provided for citizens including welfare, employment, social security, health insurance, micro-credit, child protection, education, and health support programs. 

Of note, is that Mongolia was rated as providing superior social services to China, India, the Philippines and Indonesia. 

Bank officials made a special point to acknowledge that their study proves that a government’s will to provide for its citizens, rather than its overall wealth, is often the deciding factor in the quality of services available. 

Besides Mongolia, Japan, South Korea and Uzbekistan were cited as having superior social benefits for citizens.

Mongolia Websites

The goal of the Mongolian River Resources website is to provide information on a wide spectrum of topics related to natural resource use and the environment in Mongolia. This includes issues within Mongolia, and relevant international information and experiences. The need for information pertinent to the environment, ecology, and resource use, available to a broad audience with diverse interests and needs, was identified during the initial year of The Asia Foundation’s Securing Our Future program.
