A two-day brainstorm workshop was organized to discuss a new proposal for a collaborative programme between ILO and UNIFEM on the issue of the unpaid domestic care work carried out primarily by women (care economy) in the context of HIV/AIDS and situated within the larger framework of the world of work. The workshop was designed to focus on the key elements of the programme, and to achieve a balance of information sharing and presentations with group work to facilitate the process of brainstorming.
