Tunisian spring: Tunisian Government Plans Social Reforms after Week of Unrest

Week of Unrest
Tunisia’s government plans to increase aid to the poor and improve healthcare following a week of unrest triggered by austerity measures.

The social affairs minister, Mohamed Trabelsi, announced on Saturday monthly aid to needy families would rise from 150 dinars (£45) to between 180 and 210 dinars.

He also said reforms that have been in the pipeline for several months would guarantee medical care for all Tunisians and also provide housing to disadvantaged families, The Guardian reported.

“This will concern about 250,000 families,” he said. “It will help the poor and middle class.”
