According to the civil affairs department of the Tibet Autonomous Region, an urban and rural social relief system has been initially set up in Tibet. The system is based on living assistance, special relief for medical care, education, and housing; and complemented by other relief measures and social mutual assistance.

Since last July, the minimum livelihood guarantee system has been introduced among Tibetan rural residents; and 220,000 extremely poor people in rural and pastoral areas have become beneficiaries.

As of the end of 2007, 41,000 urban residents in Tibet were receiving social insurance; and social security expenditures totaled 62,453,600 yuan. The urban minimum living guarantee maintained a trend towards: "people should be guaranteed and will be guaranteed." The minimal insurance standards rose to 260 yuan per person per month, from 130 yuan in 1997.

Tibet's urban and rural medical assistance programs are fully implemented. According to incomplete statistics, last year, 882 urban residents receive medical care assistance; and 2,086,300 yuan reached the applicants. The number of residents in agricultural and pastoral areas who received medical assistance amounted to 6,280; and relief funds reached 6,846,400 yuan.
