President Abdel Fattah El Sisi has directed to simply procedures for citizens to receive state-funded treatment, said Health and Population Minister Khaled Abdel Ghaffar.
Speaking to Sada El Balad TV channel, the minister reiterated on Monday that strict directives have been issued to treat any insured citizens in hospitals until they have decisions of state-funded treatment.
A total of 62 million citizens are covered by health insurance and have the right to receive such treatment, he said.
The minister said a proposal was presented to the political leadership to establish the largest regional center for organ transplant in Egypt and the Middle East.
Sisi also directed to establish a new hospital affiliated to Om El Masryeen Hospital in Giza to provide medical services for further patients, according to him.
