South Africa and Egypt discuss establishment of specialised clinics for medical tourism in both countries

Egypt hosted a meeting between the chairman of the Egyptian General Health Authority and South African diplomats

Ahmed El-Sobky, Chairman of Egypt's General Health Authority held a meeting with Joseph Ntshikiwane Mashimbye, South Africa's Ambassador to Egypt, and Fulufhilo Themele, First Secretary of the Embassy. They discussed ways to develop co-operation and exchange experiences in the health sector between the two countries.

The participants of the meeting spoke about the achievements and successes of health management and how they have affected the health system in Egypt. Comparisons were made between the health systems in Egypt and South Africa, the implementation of comprehensive health insurance and the role of the private sector. This is reported by Daily News Egypt, a partner of TV BRICS.

El-Sobky said that they discussed the possibility of co-operating with South Africa in the fields of medical tourism, investment in healthcare, and sharing expertise in healthcare.

“We aim to make a joint investment with South Africa by establishing specialized clinics to provide medical tourism services in both countries,” El-Sobky said, adding that this is a great opportunity to attract health investments from South Africa to Egypt after joining the BRICS group.

Mashimbye praised the achievements that President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi has made in all fields, especially the comprehensive health reform programme. He thanked President Al-Sisi for his full support in improving health care in Africa.
