Carolina Cosse continues his career towards the interior of the Wide Front with the objective of heading the formula that competes for the presidency of Uruguay in October. In that sense, he presented the second part of his Country Plan, the proposals that she promises to promote in a possible government that has her at the head; where the fulfillment of the Law of National Integrated Care System had its leading place.

“There is no inclusive productive development without a strengthened care systemwith a gender perspective and with financing that allows the maintenance of the Public politics over time,” states the document published on the Frente Amplista candidate’s website, introducing the set of measures that she will seek to carry out and that she offers as one of the reasons why citizens should choose her over the other two candidates, Yamandu Orsi and Andres Lima.

For cosse, “There is no development without care, because there are no communities that are sustainable without care, because the labor and professional insertion of women is a substantial element for development, and because care is a task that builds a future for everyone, not just for those who have autonomy.” This premise, which has been entering public policies hand in hand with the feminism, has a place of relevance in the government program that the mayor of Montevideo in use of license he plans to carry out if he wins in June and in October — or, eventually, in November.

What does Cosse propose regarding care policies?

The program of cosse Regarding care policies, he maintains that “one of the axes of the development of the Uruguay” It will be “the fulfillment of the mandate of the Law of the National Integrated Care System.”

To do this, he proposes creating new child care centers in educational centers such as UTEC, UdelaR, teacher training ANEP and extra-age education study centers and high schools with plans to complete the educational path for young people and adults. The objective is to be able to provide care alternatives and, thus, contribute to maintaining the attendance of people who carry out care tasks – mainly women – to educational centers, so that they can continue their training.

As a second action, the Frente Amplista candidate proposes expanding the number of full-time or extended-time schools throughout the country, as well as the promotion of agreements with organizations such as the National Organization of Retirees and Pensioners of Uruguay (Onajpu) for the generation of recreation and care spaces for the elderly —or day centers. This, so that “motherhood and the difficulties of caring for the elderly” are not a factor with a negative impact on “the academic achievements and the possibility of job placement of those who are responsible for these populations.”

Along these lines, they will also be created local care centers and mobile care spaces to reach all corners of the country, based on dependency and income demographic data.

Finally, the last proposal in this sense aims to advance in the co-responsibility in careredesigning the system of parental leaves “to generate incentives for the use of paternity leave and half-time paternity leave to promote and stimulate the reconciliation of family and work life with gender co-responsibility.” Dissemination campaigns will also be key to this objective.
