Title

Harmonizing global care policy?: care and the Commission on the Status of Women

Author

Bedford, Kate

Description

In March 2009 the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) was held to discuss the priority theme of "The equal sharing of responsibilities between women and men, including care-giving in the context of HIV/AIDS". This paper examines three objectives: 1) identify how the policy of equal sharing of responsibilities, including care-giving in the context of HIV/AIDS, came into being; 2) identify policy alliances generated through the equal sharing of responsibilities; 3) identify achievements forged at the 53rd session, while examining what the agreed conclusions might make possible to say and do around care issues in the future.
