Why investing in care is about equality8 March 2022
Effective and comprehensive care systems not only support fundamental rights and human dignity, they also help people maximise their potential and their contribution to economies and societies. However, gaps in care systems – which were exposed during the COVID-19 pandemic – can undermine gender equality and make it more difficult for those with disabilities to find work, so removing talent and skills from the workforce.
A new ILO report on care at work analyses the current state of care services in 185 countries and makes a strong case for increasing investment in the sector.
