The social policy represents many measures, procedures, legislations and planned programmes for achieving specific objectives of social development. Therefore, and stemming from this, the social conditions distinguish the Bahraini society as a society that belongs to the category of high income countries which might not suffer from financial poverty problems, poor social care and education as seen in a number of developing world countries.

The proof for that can be cited in Bahrain’s achievement of gains and pioneering steps in the level of human resources development that match its peers in the advanced world, which means the society possession of the most important components of development and that is the human factor. In addition, it possesses the essential infrastructure for social services and an active civil society which mean that the general direction of labour & social development policy will be focused on activating the society’s forces, updating the frameworks of developmental work, upgrading the institutional infrastructure, and concentrating on social fairness.

Based on the foregoing, and what is mentioned in the strategy of developmental social work that was established in cooperation with the United Nations Developmental Programme, it was decided to sanction two main pivots that represent the most important pivots of the social policy that was suggested. The first pivot is concerned with social investment which encompasses different social and developmental fields in order to provide radical remedy for social problems, while the second pivot focuses on social protection fields which include welfare and rehabilitation with a view to treat the aspects and results of social problems that the Bahraini society suffer from, at the present time.

Both pivots are integrated together to form a wide background of initiatives that have long term developmental and social return which can be measured and followed up. It is conditional for the achievement of these programmes and initiatives, the full coordination between all of the State establishments including Health, Works, Housing, Municipalities, Finance, and the Economical Development Board; and also to work hand in hand with the private and national sector, and to benefit from the specialized international expertise.
