Egypt’s Health Care Authority launched on Saturday its third annual meeting under the slogan ‘Building a Medical Civilisation in the New Republic… Three Years of Comprehensive Health Insurance,” from the Karnak Temple in Luxor.
The meeting was held on the three-year anniversary of President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi inaugurating the Comprehensive Health Insurance System in Port Said on 26 November 2019.
Ahmed Al-Sobky — Chairperson of the Board of Directors of the Authority, Assistant Minister of Health and Population, and General Supervisor of the Comprehensive Health Insurance Project — said that the third annual meeting of the authority celebrates the pioneering Egyptian experience in implementing the system and the achievements of the Health Care Authority.
So far, the system is being implemented in four governorates — Port Said, Luxor, Ismailia, and South Sinai.
Al-Sobky added that the annual meeting of the Health Care Authority witnessed the display of the first interactive 3D hologram in Egypt at the Karnak Temple and a discussion session on the future of healthcare in Egypt, in addition to honouring healthcare work symbols and success partners for the comprehensive health insurance project from the private sector.
He also pointed out that a meeting will be held on the side-lines of the forum with Arab and Emirati investors and the success partners of the project from the private sector to discuss strengthening cooperation, exchanging experiences for the continuity of improving the health care system in Egypt, and encouraging the investment climate in the field of health care.
Al-Sobky also stressed the importance of the meeting in consolidating relations with major Arab and international health institutions, agencies, and counterpart bodies to encourage the investment climate in the field of health care in Egypt and to enhance the country’s global leadership in this field, emphasising that there are great investment opportunities in the field of health care in Egypt.
