Description :

In the first half of 2009, structured interviews were conducted with 1,366 volunteers providing care-giving in six African countries. The interviews were conducted as part of the “Compensations for Contributions: Creating an enabling policy framework for effective home-based care” initiative, a project supported by the UNDP-Japan partnership Fund. The aims of the research were to firstly, produce evidence of caregivers’ significant contribution to the health and development of their communities that could be used for an awareness and advocacy campaign that could win public recognition, support, and resources for caregivers and their work, and secondly, to support caregivers to organise themselves more effectively at regional, national and sub-national levels. This publication summarizes the methodology, research, and findings of this qualitative study.
