Sisi aspires to achieve comprehensive healthcare

A comprehensive health insurance system, that Egyptians dream of, is a goal President Abdel Fattah El Sisi aspires to achieve to provide adequate healthcare to every citizen, Finance Minister Mohamed Maait said on Jan 18, 2020.

The political leadership provides all necessary support to the new health insurance system, which is deemed as a national project to reform the state healthcare sector, the minister added in a statement released by the Finance Ministry on Saturday.

Maait, who doubles as chairman of the General Authority for Comprehensive Health Insurance, noted that the state will take any measures required to ensure the effective operation of the new system based on beneficiaries’ feedback after the new system’s debut in Port Said governorate in July 2019.
