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.

On this podcast, you will find conversations in Spanish and in English between our MICARE postdoctoral researchers and people from academia, national and international organisations, NGOs or other institutions that work in care.
