To Improve Family Planning in Egypt…collaboration between UNFPA, Pharco Pharmaceuticals Collaborate

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and Pharco Pharmaceutical signed a cooperation protocol to enhance family planning, and reproductive services, and address population issues in Egypt, the Ministry of Health and Population announced on Tuesday.

Frederika Meijer, UNFPA Representative for Egypt, and Sherine Helmy, CEO of Pharco Pharmaceuticals, signed the protocol.

Following the signing, Minister of Health Hossam Abdel Ghaffar stated that Egypt’s goal is not only to monitor birth rates, but also to offer comprehensive care to all newborns, including health, social, and psychological support.

The protocol involves launching a campaign called A Life Path, which aims to fill gaps in family planning services in Egypt, the health minister revealed.

The health minister said that the initiative will enhance the quality and accessibility of family planning and reproductive health services, improve healthcare provider skills, and increase public awareness among citizens in line with national objectives.

He also announced that Egypt intends to set up numerous mobile medical clinics to serve remote and underserved regions and train 2,000 family planning healthcare providers to expand the scope of their services.
