The Ministry of Social Protection (Spanish: Ministerio de la Protección Social) was a national executive ministry of the Government of Colombia responsible for coordinating and implementing the national policy and social services relating to employment, labour, health and social security; it operated from 2002 to 2012.

Borne as part of a larger ministerial reform aimed at reducing the national operating budget, it consolidated the Ministry of Labour and Social Security and the Ministry of Health.[1] It was eventually divided again into the Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Health and Social Protection.[2]
