The 100 Healthy Days campaign, launched under the directives of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, aims to provide services to Egypt's 105 million population.

It provides services free of charge to all residents of Egypt both locals and foreigners under the umbrella of the 100 Million Healthy Lives initiative and its beneficiaries.

The services are provided through medical convoys, family planning clinics, routine vaccinations, and awareness campaigns, the spokesperson said.

The three-month-long campaign provided 399,152 medical services on Tuesday alone, Abdel-Ghaffar said in a statement issued by the ministry.

The services include early detection and treatment of chronic illnesses, treatment of liver cancer for hepatic cirrhosis patients to eradicate Hepatitis C and treatment of nutrition in school children and children suffering from muscle atrophy.

The campaign provides examination for cancerous tumours in the prostate, colon, lung, and cervix.

The campaign also provides care to mothers and fetuses as well as treatment of hearing loss or impairment and genetic disorders for newborns.

Beneficiaries of the pre-marriage medical examination initiative and the initiative to provide healthcare to the elderly will also benefit from the campaign.

The ministry launched on Tuesday the "You Can, Without It" anti-drug initiative for the fifth year in a row under the current campaign to encourage those recovering from addiction to avoid any activities or places that may lead them back to drug abuse.  

Abdel-Ghaffar called on all citizens to go to the headquarters of the campaign services or mobile clinics.

Those unable to do so may request assistance on hotline 15335.
