Additionally, the President highlighted the need to provide health care for school students and to ensure that families are monitoring the state of health of our children through promoting healthy food access for children and engaging them in appropriate sports activities.
The President stressed the need to promote family planning in Egypt, a major challenge manifested in the increased population growth, thus resulting in many problems, including urban encroachment on agricultural lands.
Since 2011, the population has reached about 20 million; as a result, prices soared to meet people’s demand.
