Organized by the Insurance Federation of Egypt, and sponsored by the Egyptian Ministry of Health and Population, Ministry of Finance of Egypt, and the Egyptian Financial Supervisory Authority, the forum is dedicated to explore opportunities for digitization and automation of the insurance model in the nation, under the theme of, “Confronting Epidemics and Starting the Application of Comprehensive Health Insurance Egypt as a Model”. Joining the conference are top players from the public and private sector such as Vodafone Egypt, IQVIA, Novo Nordisk, Nestle, AXA, MetLife,  GlobeMed, Gig Egypt among others to help curate a blueprint for a digitally transformed healthcare system.



 


The conference also focusses on accelerating the progress towards achieving universal health coverage (UHC) in Egypt, in alignment with the Universal Health Insurance Law (UHIL) passed in December 2017, which states that,“Every citizen is entitled to health and to comprehensive health care with quality criteria.” The UHIL envisions coverage for all citizens, specially the vulnerable, by subsidizing healthcare for over 30 percent of the population.
