From June 5-23, Egypt will provide family planning and reproductive health services to rural and low-income communities across the country for free, according to local media reports obtained from the country’s Ministry of Health on Thursday.
The National Project for Family Development, as reported by Ahram Online, is a government-driven initiative under the auspices of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi that aims to help Egyptian families financially and emotionally.
The plan will provide high-quality family planning and reproductive healthcare services to villages and settlements through a variety of medical facilities under the guidance of the health ministry. This was revealed by the spokesperson, Hossam Abdel-Ghaffar.
Close sources have confirmed that the campaign will be rolled out in three stages, with the first beginning on June 5 and concluding on June 9, the second from June 12 to June 16, and the third from June 19 to June 23.
