Egypt's doctors' syndicate sent a letter to the interior ministry Monday notifying officials of nationwide rallies that will take place at hospitals on Saturday, 20 February.
The rallies aim to condemn repeated assaults on doctors, according the syndicate's official website.
"Kindly take the necessary measures to secure the rallies," the notification letter read.
The decision was part of a set of measures the syndicate's emergency general assembly voted for last Friday.
The assembly was held in response to a recent assault by nine policemen against doctors at Matariya Hospital on 28 January.
Thousands of doctors at the assembly voted to provide medical service to citizens for free in public hospitals starting 27 Februrary until the policemen are referred to court.
Before the assembly, Cairo's prosecution charged the policemen of assault and use of violence, but they were released without bail after 24 hours of detainment pending further investigations.
