Egypt signed Monday evening a ¥1.560 billion (US$14 million) grant with the Japanese International Corporation Agency (JICA) in favor of Cairo University Specialised Pediatric Hospital. The grant will go for a project for the construction of outpatient facility at Cairo University Specialised Pediatric Hospital. The project involving building an outpatient care facility for internal medicine services at Cairo University Specialized Pediatric Hospital and providing equipment for the facility. This will improve the outpatient medical care services, strengthen the educational functions of Cairo University Specialized Pediatric Hospital, and improve the level of pediatric medical care services in Egypt. Egypt’s Minister of International Cooperation Sahar Nasr signed the exchange of letters for the provision of the JICA’s grant in the presence of Kenichi Tomiyoshi – JICA’s vice president; and the Japanese ambassador to Cairo Ambassador Takehiro Kagawa. Cairo University Specialised Pediatric Hospital was established in 1982 with grant aid from Japan as a public medical care and educational institution for pediatrics to improve the conditions of maternal and pediatric health care in Egypt. Since then, the hospital has provided advanced medical care services for more than three decades at low cost to many residents of Cairo and other areas, including the poor, and the hospital is called the “Japanese hospital” by Cairo locals. However, with the rapid increase in population in recent years, public medical care institutions face the pressing issue of inadequate medical equipment, and a need for more doctors and nurses, particularly in urban areas. In addition, the facilities at Cairo University Specialized Pediatric Hospital have also been gradually deteriorating, and the lack of space has become a serious problem. This project will solve the outpatient crowding at the facility and increase the number of medical examinations that can be performed, which is expected to improve the outpatient medical care services at the hospital. Since the inauguration of the new administration in 2014, Egypt has been working to achieve fiscal adjustment and expand the social safety net to stabilize the economy and the society. By expanding the medical care services to the poor by strengthening a public health care institution, this project will provide support for that initiative. In addition to this project, JICA is providing technical cooperation with the object of improving the quality of health care services, specifically providing comprehensive support to improve the state of maternal and pediatric health care in Egypt.

The two agreements were attended by Minister of International Cooperation Sahar Nasr, Minister of Housing Moustafa Madbouli, Minister of Education Helaly El-Sherbeeny, as well as the secretary-general of the National Council for Childhood & Motherhood (NCCM) Hala Abou Ali, and Head of the EU Delegation to Egypt, James Moran. The first agreement worth €32 million is to go for the "Kafr El Sheikh Wastewater Expansion Programme" has been designed to improve the quality of irrigation water in the governorate. This will contribute to increasing health standards for local residents and the environmental quality of the Nile, Lake Burullus,and the Mediterranean Sea at large. The total cost of this strategic project is estimated at €164 million and the total EU contribution amounts to €32 million in grants.  The remaining amount is covered by loans provided by the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). The project supports the construction of new wastewater treatment plants and first time full wastewater collection networks in the Kafr El Sheikh governorate, and will ensure their proper operation once they are in place. Ambassador Moran said "the project seeks to improve the quality of life of hundreds of thousands Egyptians and is a remarkable example of how local and international partners can join forces and resources". He noted that, in total, an impressive 500,000 inhabitants of the Kafr El Sheikh governorate are estimated to directly benefit from the wastewater treatment plants and collection networks that will be provided by this project. The project is expected to create 37,000 jobs during its planning and construction phase and 1,400 permanent jobs for the operation of the new infrastructure once established. Th eHolding Company for Water and Wastewater (HCWW) representing the Ministry of Housing is the local partner of this project, whose direct beneficiary is the Kafr El-Sheikh Water Supply and Sanitation Company (KSWSSC). As for the second agreement, it is dedicated for "Expanding Access to Education and Protection of at Risk Children" project aims to increase access to primary quality community-based education to children in the age group 6 to 14 and will contribute to improve the learning outcomes of the most vulnerable and socially excluded. The EU funded project will help set up 1,200 community schools in disadvantaged Egyptian governorates with the lowest enrolment rates. These schools will target an estimated 30,000 out-of-school and most vulnerable children in the age group 6 to 14. The project will further equip 200 public schools for the inclusion of 6,000 children with disabilities. All children attending these200 schools –a total of about 100,000–will directly benefit from the improved quality of teaching and school environment under this project. In the area of child protection, the project will strengthen the "Child Protection Committees" or "CPC", which represent the backbone of Egypt's child protection mechanism. CPC will be strengthened, among others, through the establishment of direct links with Government and non-government service providers; pilot child protection services financed by the EU will allow the expansion of the concept of "model services", in line with international best practices in this field. The total budget of this project amounts to €36.15 million, with an EU financing of €30 million. The programme will be implemented by the UNICEF, in coordination with the Ministry of Education and the National Council for Childhood and Motherhood, as well as an important group of national and local partners.
