WFP Lebanon Social Protection Factsheet – July 2022
The WFP Lebanon Social Protection Factsheet provides an overview of WFP’s National Poverty Targeting Programme and Institutional Capacity Strengthening activities in Lebanon.

The National Poverty Targeting Programme (NPTP) is Lebanon’s first targeted social safety net programme assisting Lebanese living in poverty. Formally launched in 2011 with the Ministry of Social Affairs (MoSA) and the Presidency of the Council of Ministers (PCM) as leading implementers, the NPTP provides a package of benefits that includes health, education, and food assistance to families selected based on an objective targeting methodology. The assistance comes in the form of hospitalization subsidies, school fee waivers, books, e-vouchers and cash to support food and other basic needs.
