TEC-MED project third newsletter highlights progress in implementing transnational care model for the elderly

TEC-MED Project

The TEC-MED project works on a pioneering care model for elderly people with dependency and/or at risk of social exclusion. It takes place in 6 countries Spain, Italy, Greece, Lebanon, Tunisia, and Egypt, with 9 partners and 6 associated entities.

This project aims to respond to the challenge represented by the doubling of the population over 60 years and the increasing burden of care. Therefore, it focuses on an integrated cross-cultural model that is person-centered, with the goal of promoting good practices in socio-health care in the countries of the Mediterranean Basin. In this sense, the TEC-MED project aims to foster social inclusion, gender equity, and struggle against poverty, taking into account socioeconomic, cultural, and ethical factors to encourage the comprehensive health of elderly people.

This last year the pilot phase of the project is being carried out. In this phase, all the participating countries have incorporated Final Beneficiaries, Caregivers, and Training Agents into their pilot, reaching suitable data to validate the TEC-MED model.
