Methodological Challenges for Research on Care Work for Older People in Brazil


Daniel Groisman (Oswaldo Cruz Foundation)

Major Disciplinary Field:

Health Studies




In this course we will discuss the concept of care work from a gender perspective and the challenges of conducting research on this topic in a context where care has historically been invisibilized, not recognized as work, and neglected in the context of public policies and national statistical systems. We will discuss the concept of “cities that care”, understanding that care is an important element for sustainable and healthy development, and we will report on the experience of two surveys, one quantitative and the other qualitative, conducted in the last two years on the theme of the course.
