This assessment highlights the critical need for improved working conditions for home-based care workers in Lebanon, primarily women. Lebanese nationals, migrant domestic workers, Syrian and Palestinian refugees, and other care workers face significant challenges, including low wages and inadequate legal and social protection. The assessment explores the viability of alternative SSE models to formalize employment, enhance social protection, and empower workers. Key findings emphasize the fragmented market for care services, the importance of facilitating care provision through SSE entities, and the need for a supportive legal and policy framework. Next steps include a validation workshop to align stakeholder priorities and the roll-out of ILO training tools.
