      State Welfare Organization of Iran

      State Welfare Organization of Iran is one of the most important governmental support agencies that helps people with disabilities and the underprivileged through public funding. After the victory of Iran's Islamic Revolution, State Welfare Organization was founded through integration of charities and support organizations that were active in these areas. After the studies by the esteemed martyr Dr. Mohammad Ali Fayazbakhsh, State Welfare Organization of Iran was established following a bill passed on 15 July 1980, in order to fulfill the provisions of Articles 3, 21, and 29 of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran, from the merger of 16 organizations, institutions, and associations to offer extra-insurance services while protecting the human dignity and values and relying on public participation and collaboration with related organizations to expand rehabilitation, support, re-education, and prevention of disabilities and social harm and provision of basic needs for low-income groups. In July 2004, according to the Structure Act of the Ministry of Welfare and Social Security, State Welfare Organization of Iran and its social security and health insurance subsidiaries in the Ministry of Health and Medical Education were merged with the Ministry of Welfare and Social Security.
      The Act for the Establishment of the Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor, and Social Welfare was adopted by the Islamic Consultative Assembly at its open session on Wednesday, 29 June 2011 and was approved by the Guardian Council on 2 July 2011. According to this Act, the Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor, and Social Welfare was established through the merger of three ministries, namely ministries of Cooperatives, Labor, and Social Affairs, and Welfare and Procurement. Therefore, all duties and powers of these ministries were transferred to the new Ministry and its Minister. Accordingly, in July 2011, following this Act, State Welfare Organization of Iran came under the control of the Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor, and Social Welfare.
