Egypt evaluates digital upgrades, prepares for more

The Egyptian government is reporting advances toward achieving its goal of digital transformation in all sectors.

Egypt is making progress in implementing its national goal of streamlining administrative procedures and turning itself into a hub for digital innovation.

On July 17, the Ministry of Planning, Follow-up and Administrative Reform released a report highlighting the government's advances in this regard. One of the successes outlined is its campaign against hepatitis C. The campaign has been going on for years but a program launched in October is coming to fruition. The project has provided more than 10,000 digital tablets containing citizens’ data to medical units and helped modernize 197 local medical units in various provinces by introducing modern technology and providing computers.
