The RehabiMed Project is the result of one observation: in some countries the rehabilitation activity represents more than 50% of the whole construction sector activity, while in other countries it does not even reach 10%. In addition, countries with the highest rates of rehabilitation activity are also the most developed ones; as a result, we can use this data as an indicator of development. Nowadays, RehabiMed is a network of Mediterranean experts from organizations and institutions of 15 countries: Algeria, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestinian Territories, Spain, Syria, Tunisia and Turkey.
