The Egyptian Constitution of 2014 provides for the gradual establishment of a universal health insurance system covering the entire population and whose financing would be based on the principle of solidarity, with each citizen contributing according to his or her income to allow access to health care for all. The law promulgated in January 2018 acts of the implementation of this universal health insurance, in six phases (by group of Governorates) that will allow coverage of the entire territory by 2032.

The effective implementation of the Universal Health Insurance Scheme (UHIS) responds to strategic challenges following the 2011 popular uprisings in Egypt. Faced with rapid population growth, declining labor market participation rates, rising prevalence of non-communicable diseases and deteriorating living conditions (rising poverty), and while the authorities are required to rationalize public spending to ensure the country’s macroeconomic stability, they have made the UHIS one of the cornerstones of their social justice reform agenda.

The Project “Supporting the implementation of the Universal Health Insurance System in Egypt” aims at strengthening the Egyptian government, especially the Ministry of Health and Population and the UHIS stakeholders (the Egyptian Health Authorities, the Universal Health Insurance Authority and the General Authority for Health Accreditation and Regulation) in their efforts towards the implementation of this transformational reform. The Project will mainly consist in improving business processes of the administrations and their coordination, developing monitoring and evaluation approaches and tools to assess the overall performance of the system and capitalizing on the first phase evaluations to delineate guidelines and manuals for the expansion of the system in new governorates. Funded by the French Development Agency (AFD), and implemented by Expertise France, the expertise and exchanges funds (FEXTE) will be starting in November 2022 and last for 18 months.

The project team will consist of a team in Cairo (with offices in the premises of the Egyptian Health Authority):

  • 1 Egyptian project coordinator
  • 1 Project assistant
  • Support / backstopping from Expertise France Headquarters (Paris)

  • University Degree in Economics, Social Sciences, Health, International cooperation or other relevant diplomas;
  • At least 10 years’ experience in the field of social protection and health insurance systems;
  • 5 years’ experience as project coordinator;
