MASCHERONI LAPORT, Paola. Rurality, care and public policies. Reflections from the case of Uruguay. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2021, vol.34, n.49, pp.35-62.  Epub Dec 01, 2021. ISSN 0797-5538.

Uruguay is a pioneer country in policies that seek to de-familiarize and de-feminize care, but its development has been focused almost exclusively on urban contexts, and care experiences in rural areas are still very limited. This article describes and analyzes the care policy in rural areas within the created National System of Care of Uruguay. This article argues that because the main limitations are linked to structural and cultural factors, it is necessary to address these factors simultaneously in order to promote social and gender co-responsibility

Keywords : care; rural households; public policies.
