Abstract

Peru is a country with considerable cultural and geographic diversity, and with wide socioeconomic disparities across the population. Historically, people living in the Andean and Amazonian regions of Peru have had less access to development gains than residents of other parts of the country. This delivery note examines a Peruvian government program that sought to address these gaps: the National Program of Action Platforms for Social Inclusion (Plataformas de Acción para la Inclusión Social; PAIS). The PAIS program aimed to promote more equitable access to public services. This program was meant to facilitate social inclusion by bringing public services (including health, education, civil registration and the issue of identity documents, capacity building, and social protection activities) closer to citizens who inhabited remote areas. These rural residents were often the most vulnerable and impoverished people in Peru. The program began with a pilot program led by the Peruvian Navy in a remote part of the Peruvian Amazon in 2013. It was subsequently expanded, first across the Amazon region and then across the Andean parts of Peru. Since 2016 PAIS has been led by the Ministry of Development and Social Inclusion (MIDIS), facilitating its national reach. This note discusses the origins of the program, examines how it was scaled up, and the delivery challenges (non-technical challenges that emerged during implementation) that the PAIS had to confront during this process.
