What we ask governments to do for migrant care workers

80 percent of the world’s women care workers face labor informality and lack of recognition, and women migrant care workers face even greater difficulties. The Kafala system and other employer-linked visas make their situation even more vulnerable.

Care work goes unnoticed, is not properly remunerated and carries risks: it increases the risk of gender-based violence, exploitation and trafficking. 

We need public policies that recognize the value of care work and uphold human rights.

Let’s put care work at the center of society and economy. Let’s value it!
