Egyptian hospitals are ready to treat those injured during the Sudanese revolution, Egyptian Health Minister Hala Zayed told her Sundanese counterpart Sara Abdel-Azeem during a visit to Khartoum on Saturday.
Zayed was among an Egyptian ministerial delegation, led by Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly, that traveled to the Sudanese capital on Saturday for a one-day visit to discuss cooperation in electrical connectivity, infrastructure, and health and the latest in GERD negotiations.
Both sides agreed on the number of injured people that are to be treated in Egypt, the Egyptian minister said in a statement late on Saturday, adding that the dates for administering the necessary medical care will be determined in coordination with the Sudanese embassy in Cairo after the evaluation of medical reports.
Up to 250,000 Sudanese will be also included in the Egyptian presidential initiative to treat 1 million Africans from hepatitis C.
Zayed assured that Egypt would offer all forms of support in the health sector to the Sudanese side in accordance with the directives of Egyptian President Abdel El-Fattah El-Sisi.
Both sides agreed to revive the joint Egyptian-Sudanese project to combat the malaria-bearing Gambia mosquito.
The project will help preserve the health situation in the southern part of Egypt and the northern part of Sudan, the statement added.
The two officials also agreed to adopt the investigation and contact tracing system between the two countries’ borders to eliminate rift valley fever.
