This (online) multi-disciplinary conference aims to foster dialogue about the connection between public health crises and the gendered caregiving obligations of women and girls in the context of low and lower middle-income countries. The conference presentations will examine the public health, ethical, and political significance of fragmented and under-resourced national health systems on the gendered familial care work responsibilities of women and girls from low-income households. A central theme of the conference will be the need of state actors and non-state actors (within nations and internationally) to support and bring about structural, systemic changes that will improve the lives of women and girls from low-income households. The larger goal of the conference is to foster conversation between researchers, practitioners, and activists from a variety of contexts and fields who are concerned about those issues.
