Healthcare in Egypt

When traveling to Egypt it’s important to always consider your personal healthcare needs. Being aware of emergency medical services available and who to call can result in saving your life. While there are basic needs that need to be met on a regular basis, such as staying fed and well hydrated, you still should plan for the worst.

Medical facilities are not all the same across the world. Egypt, while it has some advanced care, still has a great deal of progress to be made in their development of a healthcare system. United Medical Education (UME) along with the American Heart Association (AHA) have been working to train and educate those within the country. By providing services and education online for free there is steady progress within the country and their development of emergency medical activation systems.

United Medical Education has taken the lead on being actively involved in providing free online certification and training in the area. As a humanitarian effort, they have been working closely with doctors and other healthcare providers to stay up to date on the most current algorithms and guidelines.

Other systems and equipment still need to be integrated into their healthcare to bring it up to speed in comparison to other first world countries, but undeniable progress is being made.

When traveling to Egypt make sure you have the contact information of the emergency medical services on hand. You should always have a functioning cell phone in the area. Be careful of the food and water that you consume. Always make sure you have an extra water bottle to protect yourself from heat stroke.

Egypt has a rather rough environment that requires proper planning. If you make the effort to prepare appropriately you will be able to travel the country safely and without worry.

When I travel to Egypt I always plan my stay near a medical facility or hospital. I speak with locals and discover where the local pharmacies sell my needed medications and daily needs. If you follow these same principles you’ll not only enjoy your experience much more but you’ll also be much more comfortable during your stay.

Egypt can be a place of total adventure where in you can do so much more.

If you’re hungry for adventure, you can sign up for a desert safari trip and explore a mile after mile of the sand adventure. There are different ways to take the trip. If you want to admire the place and take it slow, then you have the option to ride the camel instead. If you want to give yourself a little adrenaline, go for the 4×4 ride on the dunes. You can also do a squad biking and leave a trail if you want to. Whichever way you want, the desert safari trip is not an option to be missed while in Egypt.

For a bit relaxed adventure, crossing the Nile River could be a good way to do it. Experience the breeze and be hypnotized by the beauty that the river can bring. Only in Egypt that you get to experience cruising the Nile in one of Egypt’s traditional sailing boats. If you prefer to sail through the orange sky light, then sail during the sunset. As you travel through the famous valley you would be able to pass the time wrap villages. Nile’s a real beauty worth experiencing.

We’ve already walked the land trip at the desert, after then a tour through the water valleys of Egypt. Now it’s time to take a detour up above the sky and experience a once in a life time moment by watching the sun rise over the horizon by getting into an early morning hot air balloon ride. Get lost at the moment while watching the temples, monuments, and the ruins up above the sky. There could be nothing more beautiful than watching the biggest out-door museum from up above the ground.

Enough with all the side trips, let’s take a detour and experience the Egyptian life by taking a glimpse of how they go about life. Hurghada’s downtown area known as El Dahar, the home of the fish markets in Egypt, the old harbor and the traditional shops, also known as the original fishing village. The place is huge that you might get lost or would not even know where to start, so just try to enjoy the diversity of shops and the lifestyle in Egypt. This is surely worth a side trip.

These are just one of the few things you can do while in Egypt. But there surely is more to this historic place.
