Egypt Health Minister Hala Zayed says the country will commence the construction of a massive Specialised hospital to meet obstetrics, gynaecological and pediatrics demands in Djibouti next month.
The establishment of the specialised hospital was agreed on during President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi’s “historic” visit to Djibouti in May, 2021.
El-Sisi’s visit marks the first official visit by an Egyptian President to Djibouti since its independence in the seventies.
In a press briefing with her Djibouti counterpart, Ahmed Abdilleh, Zayed said a nursing and midwifery school, as well as an ambulance department, will be attached to the hospital.
Egypt will supply the hospital with medical staff, medicine and medical supplies, Zayed said, adding that the operation and preparation of the hospital will be Egypt’s responsibility.
During the presser, Abdilleh lauded the step as a positive leap in the medical field in the country, especially in the field of obstetrics, gynaecology and paediatrics.
He added that the planned hospital is a bestowment from the Egyptian people to the citizens of Djibouti and reflects the sustained cordial and brotherly relations between both countries.
He promised that his country will facilitate all the required procedures for the implementation of the project in the shortest time possible.
Zayed said the average number of births per family in Djibouti is 10 and therefore an obstetrics and paediatrics hospital is largely needed, especially that the hospital will serve a “crowded” area.
Meeting with his Djiboutian counterpart Ismaïl Omar Guelleh during the visit, El-Sisi reiterated Egypt’s keenness to enhance support directed to development efforts in Djibouti.
