Belize

Social conditions

Despite an investment in vocational education, the country has a shortage of professional workers. However, there is a surplus of theoretically trained labor. In the 1990s, cuts in the public sector were started to deal with a sharp budget deficit. Many are looking for work abroad, especially in the United States.

Society of Belize

A social insurance system with sickness, accident and life insurance and maternity allowance was adopted in 1981 and has been built up with the help of the International Labor Organization (ILO). There are eight doctors per 10,000 residents (2010). Visit AbbreviationFinder to see the definitions of BLZ and acronym for Belize.
