II. National social protection floors

4. Members should put in place and complete as rapidly as possible, and maintain,

their social protection floors comprising basic social security guarantees.

The guarantees should ensure at a minimum that, over the life cycle, all in need have

access :

a) to essential health care and

b) to basic income security

which together secure effective access to goods and services defined as necessary at the national level.
