CAIRO – 19 September 2022: Egypt’s Health minister Khaled Abdel Ghaffar said that some doctors and families prefer women to perform a caesarean section at most times; however, it’s not always the best solution for the mother.

The Minister stressed, during a televised statement that there is a danger to the mother and fetus in the choice of having a caesarean section, adding that mother's desire should always be respected.

Abdel Ghaffar pointed out that Egypt has become the first in the world in cases of caesarean section.

He added that the state is working to educate citizens about the dangers of caesarean sections, to protect the health of women and the health of their children, explaining that the caesarean section affects the development of the fetus.
