Egypt hopes to use its improving health sector to promote medical tourism, encouraging citizens of other African nations to visit Egypt for treatment.

This topic was discussed at a Sept 2. meeting between Dr. Ahmed El-Sobky, President of the General Authority for Health Care, and Ambassador Mohamed Khalil, the Secretary-General of the Egyptian Agency for Partnership for Development (EAPD). Established in 2014, the EAPD is the first South-South cooperation institution in Egypt to share technical expertise with African countries.
