Migrants in Egypt are entitled to use Public Health Services. In addition, you can also be seen in Private Hospitals. Some non-governmental and international organizations can provide both medical care services, referrals to public or private hospitals and medical clinics and financial help to migrants.





For medical emergencies, go to the nearest public hospital or public health care unit.


Medical Testing


Some organizations provide medical testing services like blood tests and other type of medical examinations at their medical facilities.




The medical services vary from organization to organization. Also, depending on the type of medical aid needed, age and status, the patient will be directed to a different hospital or clinic for tests or a doctor’s consultation.


Private Sector


Medical services that are offered by private hospitals or clinics that host migrants and/or have agreements with certain NGOs.



Public Sector


Any public hospital in Egypt operating under the Ministry of Health can provide emergency and primary health care to all migrants, asylum seekers, refugees and other persons of concern to UNHCR regardless of their residence status. Patients will have to pay for the same nominal fee for the medical treatment as the nationals. Fees are meant to be affordable, but sometimes medicines or other consumables are not available and the patient needs to buy them at his/her own expense. Even though all public hospitals can provide emergency and primary health care, the following public hospitals in Cairo and Alexandria are recommended as they have a potential capacity to accommodate migrants and refugees.
