Minister of Health Hala Zayed said on Wednesday that Egypt has started setting up four medical care centers in Africa starting with Chad.

The minister said the steps comes within the initiative by Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi for treating one million African nationals from Hepatitis virus C.

The minister also noted the project includes the treatment of all African nationals living in Egypt.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Egypt tweeted late on Tuesday that the country has been offering free checkups and treatment to 11،000 foreigners for hepatitis C.

"The Egyptian Ministry of Health provided virological tests and free treatment for 11،000 foreigners، including refugees and asylum seekers،" the tweet read.
