From Egypt: Law No 2/2018 Promulgating the Law on the Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme
The Egyptian parliament has recently approved a new law covering health insurance. The law is an update from a more populist system which had been in place since the 1960s. It is important not only for its benefactors, but for business owners; the law imposes new obligations on them when it comes to financial contributions. The application of the law, or the building of different hospitals and clinics, will take place over six phases, starting in 2018 and ending in 2032. It will start with five governorates, including Suez and Port Said, and will end with Cairo and Giza. However, the funding provisions will be applicable from 2018 onward.
