Ministry: 100-Day Health initiative offered 57.5 million services nationwide

As many as 57,539,071 services were provided throughout Egypt’s governorates under the presidential healthcare campaign dubbed “100-Day Health, as part of the 100-Million Health initiative”, Health and Population Minister Khaled Abdel Ghaffar said on Friday 29/12/2023.

Spokesman for the Ministry of Health and Population Hossam Abdel Ghaffar said that the 100-Day Health campaign has provided 1,572,401 services since its launch, as part of the presidential women’s health initiative. Additionally, the number of occasional and recurring visits amounted to 4,585,222.

Up to 2,579,347 questionnaires were filled out within the President’s initiative to examine cancerous prostate – colon – lung – cervical tumors.

Also, 1,633,744 citizens visited the medical convoys, while beneficiaries of family planning clinic services reached 12,233,699 females.

The 100-day campaign aims to intensify preventive care services (including immunizations and vaccines), as well as environmental health and food safety services while raising citizens’ awareness concerning health-related misconceptions.

The campaign offers check-ups, treatment, testing, and screening services at the state’s expense, the minister said, noting that many mobile clinics have also been deployed to public and crowded places.

These clinics cover various specializations, such as internal medicine, paediatrics, surgery, ophthalmology, teeth, ear and nose, obstetrics and gynaecology, and dermatology.
