Five advocacy priorities implemented by select national caregiver organizations and adopted as universal needs by the International Alliance of Carer Organizations, serve as a reference for the development of legislation, policy and programs that support unpaid caregivers around the world.

They include:

  1. Safeguard the health and well-being of unpaid caregivers.
  2. Minimize the financial burden placed on unpaid caregivers.
  3. Enable access to user friendly information and education.
  4. Create flexible workplace and educational environments that respect caregiving obligations.
  5. Invest in research to support evidence-informed decision making.

Innovative programs are being executed around the world addressing these priorities and having a positive impact on caregivers lives. Learn more about these cutting-edge initiatives.
