We are the Millennium Institute for Care Research, MICARE.
Funded by the National Agency for Research and Development (ANID) since December 2020 and housed in three Chilean universities: Universidad Andrés Bello, Universidad de los Andes, and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso.
We are a young and enthusiastic team of researchers from Chile and abroad who are concerned about and interested in improving the lives of three especially vulnerable groups in Latin American societies: dependent elderly people, people with intellectual
and developmental disabilities, and their carers.
Our team includes as co-researchers people who have become experts through experience, but in
addition to that, we seek to bring their voice to all the decisions we make.
