The WHO Regional Office for Europe, together with the European Association Working for Carers (Eurocarers), recently published a new infographic
on how gender shapes the impact of caregiving on unpaid informal carers' health and wellbeing.
'Care at work'
, a recent report by the International Labour Organization (ILO), found that investment in care leave and services (including long-term care) could create up to 300 million jobs by 2035 while responding to the world's increasing care needs.
Establishing sustainable and equitable long-term-care systems and services requires country-level action. WHO has produced a framework to support countries
take steps to ensure access to long-term care is available as a part of universal health coverage programmes.
