Egypt 2022 Health & Education

The Covid-19 pandemic brought the limitations of the Egyptian health care sector under the spotlight, notably in regards to the medical staff-to-patient ratios and hospital bed numbers below the regional average. However, the health crisis has also helped to spur investment across the sector, especially in telehealth and medical technologies. Egypt is now advancing in its aim to deliver universal public health care to its entire population. In a similar line, education has been a primary policy priority for the current administration. The so-called Year of Education in 2019 has led to several large-scale changes, notably new school curricula with a greater focus on foreign languages and technology. While the pandemic negatively affected the student population by limiting access to in-person classes, it facilitated the adoption of education technology development in Egypt.
