Supporting Healthcare Reform in Egypt

A Case Study


OFFER AREA: Education and Training MARKET AREA: Egypt

escalla are a learning and change management company, with over 20 years’ experience supporting client healthcare transformation programmes both in the UK and globally. In 2019 DIT helped them work with the Egyptian Ministry of Health and Population (EMOH) supporting their Universal Healthcare Insurance Scheme (UHI).

escalla showcased the various projects it has completed with the NHS, including working with every NHS Trust and GP in the country. They scoped the ways that escalla could best support the Egyptian Family Doctors, who would be the primary gatekeeper and point of contact as all Egyptian citizens were eligible for health care. The result was escalla using its network of subject matter experts and experience to create a 10-day experiential learning course in the UK and Egypt that showed how to create care pathways, manage the patient referral process and run an offer of integrated services within the context of a GP Practice.

They worked with NHS partners including the Royal Free, Guys and St Thomas and Central London Community Healthcare to deliver this, providing a route to market for the NHS to deliver their expertise and generate income. They also worked with a variety of private sector partners as well.

“escalla have found working with Healthcare UK and the Department for International Trade to be straight forward and beneficial. The advice of how to trade in the region was incredibly useful and they also brokered meetings when in-country funding partners were needed. escalla welcomes the further input from Healthcare UK and the Department for International Trade as we continue to expand our footprint within Egypt and the wider region." - Siva Singh, Global Healthcare Director, escalla.
