It explores the role, structure, and functional characteristics of the social protection system in the context of Ukrainian society.

The importance of institutional reforms implemented in recent years to improve the accessibility, efficiency, and level of social protection is highlighted. The financial challenges faced by the social protection system are discussed, along with the issue of unequal access to assistance by regions and social groups.
