The Long-Term Care Policy Network in Latin America and the Caribbean (RedCUIDAR+) was created in 2020 to support Latin America and Caribbean countries’ efforts to expand long-term care services for care-dependent older people and increase their institutional and technical capacity in this area. The initiative is supported by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the European Union's EUROsociAL+ Program, and the French Development Agency (AFD).
The Government of the Republic of Colombia will host the eighth meeting of RedCUIDAR+ with the theme Community and Inclusive Care: Needs, Practices and Lessons Learned.
The eighth meeting of RedCUIDAR+ is meant to be a space for exchanging experiences and best practices on policies, programs, projects, and actions that have promoted community-based and inclusive care for older persons, including the dynamics related to different ethnic groups. With these inputs, the aim is to identify support mechanisms that governments can design for communities. This note briefly describes the three experiences that will be presented at the event.
