Description

Objectives

  • Disseminate the resolution's message, urging Member States to enhance awareness, refine policies, and amplify investments to overhaul care and support systems for a sustainable and just society, promote gender equality and deliver on leaving no one behind.
  • Undertake resolute actions to establish care and support systems that are human rights-based, gender disability-, and age-responsive, underpinned by the guarantee for decent work for care workers and quality care and support for recipients.
  • Promote the participation of all stakeholders in the discussion, particularly caregivers, care workers and recipients of care and support as rights holders.
