Although it's not known where or when it will be built, Egypt is rapidly going forwards with preparations to construct an industrial complex to manufacture artificial limbs.

A new industrial complex will be dedicated to the manufacturing of artificial prosthetic limbs, the latest in a number of moves to bolster the integration of Egyptians with disabilities.

Although we still don’t know where the complex will be built or when it will be opened, a few decisions have been made ahead of construction announcements. These include the establishment of qualification programmes to scout for professionals to work on the project, the creation of a comprehensive database to audit the number of people with mobility disabilities at the national level, and requiring medical schools in Egypt to integrate academic disciplines related to prosthetic devices and physiotherapy into their curriculum.
