Consul General of Egypt in Port Sudan, Ambassador Mohammed Khalil accompanied by the Sudanese Minister of Health in the Red Sea Province visited the dialysis centre in Port Sudan, on March 4th, 2013, to present medical aid from the Egyptian Fund for technical Cooperation with Africa. The Minister of Health expressed his appreciation for the continuous support of the Fund to the centre, particularly through providing rare medicines, in light of the dire need of the centre to receive government and popular support that nearly represents one-third of the actual needs of the centre. The Minister praised the role played by the Consulate General in promoting bilateral cooperation relations in the health field.
The Consul General explained that the support presented from the fund is a modest contribution to the superior message of the centre, with which the relations has developed to the partnership level. The year 2012 witnessed dispatching Egyptian experts in the field of dialysis and presenting pharmaceutical aid within the framework of the bilateral health cooperation at the level of the Red Sea province which is expected to witness during 2013 and before the summer season a visit by Egyptian medical convoy to Port Sudan and establishing twin relations with one of the Egyptian hospitals.
