Healthcare in Egypt

Since 2000 better quality medical care is available in Egypt and healthcare in Egypt generally enjoys a good reputation for the region.

Modern hospitals and clinics are commonplace throughout the country, particularly in Cairo, and these can either be state run or privately owned hospitals. Expatriates are encouraged to contact their international health insurance provider before looking to leave the country for care. For many procedures, expatriates can find adequate treatment locally however, for larger procedure most will leave the country and return home.

Doctors are very good for the most part. Some hospitals are good. You need to check and find the best hospital around the area that you live in. Dar el Fouad in 6th of October City is supposed to be the best. Pharmacists all speak English, but because of differences in accent, it is easier to write what you require rather than vocalize it.

The exact medicines you are looking for may not be available but they will search for something with similar composition and offer it to you. Imported medicines are available but expensive. Locally made ones are available for 1/5th the cost.

Pharmacies are available on every street. But check to find one that you are comfortable with. Many doctors in Egypt are Western-trained and speak English. They generally have a high standard of medical knowledge. In fact students from many Arab countries and Africa come to study medicine at universities in Egypt. Medical facilities in Cairo, Alexandria, and Sharm El Sheikh are considered to be perfectly adequate for routine problems, but emergency services can sometimes be limited.
