Egypt has a pluralistic healthcare system that includes both public and private sectors. The public healthcare system is generally of low quality due to a lack of funding and understaffing, with significant differences between the availability of health services in rural areas and those found in big cities such as Cairo. The government has attempted to reform the public healthcare system, but it still has obsolete medical facilities, long waiting times for treatment, insufficient levels of personnel training, and sewage disposal issues.

Many Egyptians and expats in Egypt turn to private hospitals, which are of high quality and have around-the-clock medical specialty care. Private healthcare facilities in Egypt consist of nonprofit organizations and for-profit hospitals and clinics. Many mosques also provide medical services, and in some instances, better care is offered at these sites than public services. However, people still have to pay large out-of-pocket expenses for care. Private hospitals and clinics in Egypt specialize in particular illnesses, such as bone disease, optical issues, heart disease, geriatric medicine, kidney and liver diseases, and more.

Medical tourism can bring in additional revenue for hospitals and healthcare providers, which can help to improve the quality of care they provide. Egypt has all the ingredients to become a medical tourism hub, including affordable prices for both treatments and tourism attractions, a wide range of services at integrated medical centers, and healthcare professionals with international education and training. However, Egypt falls short of claiming a share of the medical tourism industry comparable to competing nations, such as Jordan or South Africa, due to a lack of government support and poor marketing efforts.
