Our first edition of 2022 focuses on Healthcare and Life Sciences. It is a sector that will once again have the spotlight on it this year as we continue to tackle COVID-19 and its subsequent variants. While the pandemic continues to challenge the sector, governments across the region forge ahead with their plans to expand and upgrade healthcare systems and develop robust world-class healthcare infrastructure.
For the region, healthcare is a vital pillar in diversifying its economies, both locally and as medical tourism hubs. To underpin this, healthcare authorities across the region continue to implement frameworks and regulations that provide structure and accountability.
In this edition, you have unique access to great insights and expert commentary on a number of pertinent healthcare regulatory developments. You will find a topical mix of articles; for example, our lawyers discuss vaccines and returning to work during the pandemic. They take you through several other areas, including stem cell research in Bahrain, clinical research laws in Egypt, and Saudi medical device and pharmaceutical laws.Take a read of the edition
The Higher Education sector in Egypt comprises of mainly public and private universities. In 2018, the government introduced an International Branch Campuses (IBCs) law. This was done for three main reasons, to attract foreign high ranking universities to Egypt and therefore increase its educational offering, to reduce the level of students studying abroad and retain Egyptian talent, and to establish a key educational hub for Egypt and the wider MENA region.
Click the video the watch Mohamed Gabr, Partner and Head of Corporate Commercial in Egypt, discuss what IBC’s are, how they are regulated under Egyptian Law, and the routes in which foreign universities can set up an IBC in Egypt and help reform the education sector in the region.
