TEC-MED validates its capacity building plan to improve elderly´s lives around the Mediterranean

Tunisian Team

The 2nd TEC-MED International Workshop "Advances and Capitalization Plan", will bring together the TEC-MED project partners from six Mediterranean countries : Spain, Tunisia, Lebanon, Egypt, Greece and Italy and their stakeholders (social partners, health professionals, NGOs, civil society, training agents) to discuss and share knowledge, ideas, and experiences. These interventions aim to enhance the capacity for the development, implementation and monitoring of an effective, universal and sustainable model of health and social care for dependent people and/or at risk of social exclusion. In each partner´s country, stakeholders will define the expansion of the project´s strategy.

The consultations within the framework of the 2nd TEC-MED International Workshop emphasize the importance to engage in an inclusive multi-stakeholder exchange aiming to enrich the results of consultations around the main needs identified and prioritized of the capacity building plan of the TEC-MED project, through the previous national workshops, to increase their competence and knowledge about health and social care of elderly people.

There are specific objectives for the workshop: validating the stakeholder capacity building plan for each country partner (obtained by consensus of organized consultations), promoting intercountry exchanges about capacity building plans, strengthening the stakeholders’ involvement and adhesion to the project, and involving stakeholders in the TEC-MED capitalization process.

The participation of the training agents who work with elderly people from both the public and private sectors is of utmost importance as they will be implementing the TEC-MED model.

This online event, organised by our Tunisian partner will be held on July 16, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (Tunisia time). The workshop includes two main sessions; a 2-hour plenary session with all project partners and guests and a 1h 15mn parallel session within 5 virtual rooms (one by country group) dedicated to discuss with the stakeholders on the capitalization plan and to collect their inputs in order to continue constructing the capitalization plan and to ensure the dissemination of the project.

The results of each country workgroup will be discussed and enriched by feedback during a 30mn zoom plenary restitution session, which will later be followed by the conclusion of the workshop.
