Progress of the World’s Women 2019-2020: Families in the Changing World; What Will it Cost?

To implement the recommendations outlined in this Report, governments need to design a package of family-friendly social transfers and services, aimed at supporting diverse families and protecting women’s rights. The importance of this has been reinforced by the Commission on the Status of Women, which has urged governments to implement family-friendly policies aimed at achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women.

Some of the key elements of this policy package-social protection, care services, and universal health coverage that also ensures access to sexual and reproductive healthcare services-are also called for in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and various targets of the Sustainable Development Goals.
