Egypt ready to provide medical treatment to Malawian patients in its hospitals

CAIRO – 6 June 2022: Acting Minister of Health and Population Khaled Abdel Ghaffar met Monday with his Malawian counterpart in Cairo expressing readiness to provide medical treatment to the patients of the fellow African state in Egypt.

 The two ministers also discussed cooperation in the field of drug production, as Egypt backs initiatives aimed at localizing pharmaceutical industries on the continent.

 The Egyptian ambassador to Malawi delivered in March a shipment of aid to help alleviate the impact of Hurricane Ana.

 Ambassador Mohamed Al-Sherif handed over the shipment of drugs and medical equipment to the Malawian Minister of Health Khumbizi Chiponda in the capital of Lilongwe and a group of officials. 

 Sherif delivered a speech at Kamuzu Airport that emphasized the Egyptian-Malawian relations. 

 For her part, Chiponda said Egypt is one of the first countries that have dispatched aid to Malawi after the hurricane. 

 She also applauded medical training delivered by Egypt to Malawian health workers as part of the cooperation between the two African nations.
