Minister Abdel Ghaffar underscored the importance of the campaign to spread health awareness among the members of the public across the country.
Using over 5,000 primary care clinics nationwide, the campaign includes 500 medical convoys that make check-ups, tests and screenings and offer treatment for free.
Around 53 mobile clinics have also been deployed to public and crowded places.

He reviewed a report about the committee’s work and called for maintaining these efforts to alleviate the suffering of patients and their families and provide them with support, in the light of directives by President Sisi.
The prime minister also commended co-operation among health bodies, dealing with the complaints of citizens.
“We all work to achieve one goal: serving Egyptian citizens,” the prime minister said.
