TEC-MED: Development of a transcultural, social-ethical care model for dependent population in the Mediterranean Sea Basin

The countries of the Mediterranean Sea basin are showing a common pattern of declining social support and the need for innovative models of ethical-social care for dependent elderly people. The TEC-MED Project will be implemented in six countries of the Mediterranean basin (Spain, Italy, Greece, Lebanon, Egypt and Tunisia), developing a cross-cultural model that favours the inclusion and integration of people, taking into account cultural factors such as their identity ethnicity, gender and religion; socio-economic factors such as professional career and place of residence; and ethical factors such as respect for the physical and mental health of the person for aging, dependent people with lack of family support.

For the development of the TEC-MED Model, a methodology of involvement of key agents and participation of the target population has been taken into account.
A multidisciplinary and cross-cultural approach will be taken into account with a special emphasis on social, gender, ethical and religious aspects.


The main objective of the project is to create a transcultural, ethical and social model for the care of the elderly dependent population in the Mediterranean basin.

In addition, three secondary objectives have been established:

  • Support the key actors in the development of the TEC-MED Model.
  • Train stakeholders from a multidisciplinary perspective.
  • Implement the TEC-MED platform to foster a coherent framework, accessible and cooperative.
