New ILO report Care work and care jobs for the future of decent work takes a comprehensive look at unpaid and paid care work and its relationship with the changing world of work. A key focus is the persistent gender inequalities in households and the labour market, which are inextricably linked with care work.
On the basis of this report, ILO highlights inadequate policy responses to the rising demand and the higher extent of the care burden on women. In a press statement, ILO urges for doubling the investment in the care economy in order to avert a looming global care crisis.
ILO has also published a video and statistics/graphs on care work.
