ILO Brief

Childcare leave and services from a women ’s entrepreneurship development perspective

This brief provides an overview of current gaps in terms of care policies and provision of care services primarily for women entrepreneurs and highlights existing intervention models to expand provision and contribute to job and enterprise growth in the sector within the framework of the ILO’s approach to care leave and care provision. For that, it primarily draws from relevant and recent ILO and Donor Committee for Enterprise Development publications.
