Ministry of Health to Provide Free Treatment for Pregnant Mothers

The campaign will provide expecting mothers with free healthcare, giving them access to early detection of B virus, immunodeficiency, and syphilis.

As other parts of the world celebrate Mother’s Day, the Ministry of Health and Population has launched a new initiative to protect Egyptian mothers and their unborn children. The campaign will provide expecting mothers with free healthcare, giving them access to early detection of B virus, immunodeficiency, and syphilis. The ministry will also help mothers receive consultations to prevent diseases, along with a clinical examination to discover risk factors accompanying the pregnancy. 

After they've had their babies, the mother and her newborn child will continue to receive healthcare for the next 42 days, including necessary micronutrients. The analysis procedures will determine if the mothers require an Anti-D injection after giving birth, as well as detect albumin and urinary system diseases. 

These services will be offered at all health units and medical centres across the nation. Advanced cases of diseases like the Herpes-B virus and HIV will be treated at 90 centres, while syphilis patients will be tended to across 163 centres. Lastly, cases of high blood sugar levels will be assessed and treated at 303 hospitals.
