In April 2009, GEMSA embarked on the second phase of the care work project-unpaid care work. In light of the emerging research and policies in this area, GEMSA conducted a “policy analysis” of care work in the following twelve countries: Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. GEMSA researchers and partners have studied existing policies/guidelines and have identified gaps in care work provisions.

The purpose of the audit and this consequent report, which will be launched at the Heads of State Summit in the Democratic Republic of Congo in September 2009, is to develop model policies that can be used to lobby governments for more farreaching provisions for home based caregivers who are unrecog-nised, undervalued and frequently unpaid women and girls.
