Launch of the New ILO Care Policy Investment Simulator

Showing dates/times for

The ILO, with the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has developed the Care Policy Investment Simulator, the largest online care policy modelling tool that once launched will be available for the general public. Containing data from more than 80 countries and built on over 180 statistical indicators, the Simulator automatically calculates both the investment requirements for a package of care leave policies and services and the related benefits in terms of job generation, reduction in gender employment and wage gaps and return on investment. 
The Simulator shows that technologies can be a powerful engine to support gender-transformative policy making and improve the lives of care providers, care workers and of those cared for.
