The World Health Organization (WHO) has released a new report called Women on the move: migration, care work and health. The report focuses on care workers, which consist mostly of migrant women, who are working in informal home settings. While these women make great contributions to public health in several nations, they face barriers to accessing care, health risks, and have limited labour and social protections.
The report examines the lives of these migrant women care workers as well as the condition for their households left behind.
