escalla at the BEBA Egyptian Healthcare Conference in Cairo

‘New Horizons in Egypt’s Healthcare Sector’ conference

This week, escalla has joined the ‘New horizons in Egypt’s health care sector’ conference, hosted in Cairo British Egyptian Business Association (BEBA).

The conference is part of the Egyptian government’s plans to develop the health sector in the country, and to provide health care to those most in need.

It also falls under the “A Decent Life” initiative to provide a good standard of living for the most needy categories of Egyptian society in 2019, launched by President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi. This places emphasis on efforts to develop the healthcare system and improve the services provided to citizens, in preparation for the launch of the national comprehensive health insurance project.

Attending the conference are Minister of Finance, Mohamed Moeit; former Deputy Prime Minister and former Minister of International Cooperation, Ziad Bahaa El Din; CEO of the General Authority for Investment and Free Zones (GAFI), Mohsen Adel; chairperson of the Egyptian Exchange, Mohamed Farid; and chairperson of BEBA, Khaled Nosseir; as well as a number of senior officials in the health sector.

BEBA chairperson, Khaled Nosseir spoke about what a great opportunity the conference is to facilitate greater cooperation between the British and Egyptian industries of healthcare and medical insurance. He also detailed the importance of growing joint investment cooperation in the health sector, and the importance of optimising evaluation and reviewal measures to ensure the efficiency of the new healthcare system.

“Egypt has achieved strong GDP growth rates over the past few years, which requires us to work together to develop the infrastructure of the health sector in Egypt,” he added.

Who is the BEBA?

The BEBA is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation, serving the interests of the British-Egyptian business community. The BEBA was established in 1996 with 100 members.

Watch escalla CEO, Dave Field, give his introduction at the conference:

My name is David Field. I'm a founder and chief executive of escalla.

Firstly I'd like to thank BEBA and the EBBC, the British Embassy and the DIT for making it possible for us to be here today.

My company has been at the forefront of delivering change programmes across the NHS for about 20 years.

We've been involved in delivering programmes such as patient safety, patient records systems, referral systems, and governance, to name a few.

We’ve been delivering the programmes using various techniques but most recently, using the internet and mobiles phone technology has become really important.

I’m very proud to say we were one of the first companies to be part of the Egyptian healthcare reform from the UK, and to have signed an agreement that’s part of the memorandum of understanding signed here in Cairo earlier this year between Her Majesty’s Government and the Egyptian Ministry of Health.

Under that programme, we're going to be bringing later this month a group of general practitioners and family doctors to the UK to look at UK primary, secondary and community healthcare pathways.
They’ll be meeting with GPs, with doctors, with nursing staff, in a variety of different settings, so they can fully appreciate the systems and processes that we use in the UK.

After that we'll be returning to Egypt and having sessions on what best practices they can take from what they saw in the UK, and how they can employ those and we're very proud to be part of the programme and be part of this historic movement.
