They aim to ensure social rights expressed in law or in other forms, which can meet the social needs of people, and promote social cohesion and solidarity. They exist in France for a long time but the French doctrine and case law does distinguish between public social services as a special category because they were traditionally organized into business processes administrative law. Social services have evolved considerably in the twentieth century. They became more and their management is often carried out by methods of private law with the increasing involvement of private organizations.

If the goal of human services is to offer people a roof, it is also to guide them towards a personal and social autonomy that includes help in family conflict, debt, addiction, job loss, prison. Pitfalls to explain their presence are as diverse as specialist skills that enable them to regain confidence and to consider a new course of life. (Woodside, 2005)

Benefits assume the existence of a system of care and protection accessible, acceptable and of good quality. Therefore, the right to health implies that there is in the land of facilities, goods and services of public health and medical care available in sufficient quantity and that work. They must also be accessible to all without discrimination. Accessibility means: physical accessibility, affordability and accessibility of information.

For almost two decades, the policy of spending on social sectors in developing countries raises critical. At the macroeconomic level, some accuse the government to devote fewer resources to the areas of education and health due to the persistence of budget deficits and the difficulties that these countries are having to increase tax revenues. In addition, the problem seems not only related to the insufficient volume of expenditure but an inefficient allocation of financial resources. While some developing countries actually spend little in the social services of education and health, while others spend as much or more than developed countries. The problem is that poor countries spend a larger share of their resources to basic social services, including education showed poor results compared to rich countries.
