CAIRO – 11 October 2022:  President Abdel Fattah El Sisi said on Tuesday that Egypt is keen on developing cooperation with the World Health Organization (WHO) to enhance the healthcare system and medical services in Egypt.

Sisi's remarks came during his meeting with WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in the presence of Health Minister Khaled Abdel Ghaffar, Presidential Spokesman Bassam Rady said.

Sisi valued the WHO's role and efforts, under Ghebreyesus, during the coronavirus period.

The president also noted that the State is keen to apply the universal health insurance system across the nation as a national priority in line with Egypt Vision 2030.

Meanwhile, Ghebreyesus lauded Egypt's health efforts, especially the 100 Million Health initiative, which remarkably contributed to offering better services for the Egyptians, saying WHO is keen on promoting cooperation with Egypt to benefit from its expertise as a successful one at the global level.
