Gender Equality

CARE’s commitment to women’s empowerment and gender equality is based on decades of expertise in dozens of countries and in every development sector. We see gender as a cross-cutting issue that we address in every program to make an equal world free of poverty.

Sexual, Reproductive, and Maternal Health

CARE works in more than 40 countries to improve health and reduce maternal and newborn mortality by increasing and improving the coverage, quality and equity of health services. 

Food and Nutrition Security

In FY14, CARE worked with over 13 million participants and had over 240 projects that focused on food and nutrition security. This work spans nutrition, smallholder agriculture, sustainable economies, and humanitarian assistance. 


Water+ is about change that is bigger than water, bigger than what we can do alone. We address social injustices by connecting water and gender equality to other sectors. Our programming around water multiplies impact across multiple sectors and levels.
