What are medical services in Cairo like?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Cairo, they replied...

"Medical services in Cairo, are a mix of public and private healthcare facilities. The public healthcare system is often overcrowded and under-resourced, leading to long waiting times and limited availability of specialized treatments. On the other hand, private hospitals and clinics in Cairo offer a higher standard of care, with well-trained medical professionals and modern equipment. However, these private facilities can be quite expensive, especially for those without insurance. Pharmacies are widely available throughout the city, and many medications can be purchased over the counter without a prescription. It is important for visitors to have comprehensive travel health insurance to cover any medical expenses they may incur while in Cairo," remarked another expat who made the move to Cairo, Egypt.
