Egypt joins with international partners for $1bn health insurance projects

The Egyptian Ministry of Finance launched cooperation projects worth almost $1 billion with international partners on Thursday, to boost financial and technical support for the country's comprehensive health insurance system.

The partners include the World Bank, the French Development Agency, the Japanese International Cooperation Agency, and the World Health Organization.

Finance Minister Mohamed Maait said that the pandemic highlighted the importance of having strong and flexible health systems capable of achieving financial sustainability without exposure to economic fluctuations, or imposing financial pressures on citizens.
