Illustrates the multiple responsibilities of women primary caregivers in the household, by photographs and narratives.
The Healthy Balance Research program worked to: examine the relationship among unpaid caregiving work (performed on its own or in combination with paid work), empowerment and health status; foster "uptake" of new ideas and practices in policies; promote innovation in programs and health-service delivery that reflects new insights into the values and expectations brought to caregiving and paid work; and, strengthen research capacity in Atlantic Canada by recruiting and retaining health researchers. It was a collaboration between the Atlantic Centre of Excellence for Women's Health (ACEWH), Dalhousie University and the Nova Scotia Advisory Council on the Status of Women (NSACSW).
