Swiss TPH The Egyptian-Swiss Radiology project is the result of a long-term collaboration between Egypt and Switzerland and considered one of the most successful international cooperation initiatives in Egypt. The partnership between the Ministry of Health and Swiss governmental and private sector actors started more than one decade ago and came to an end in July 2016.
Mandated by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), Swiss TPH implemented the project in three different phases with a comprehensive reform approach relying on the introduction of numerous innovations. Radiology departments in more than 200 hospitals were renovated and equipped with modern radiology equipment. Part of the modernisation strategy was the introduction of digital radiology equipment and related teleradiology systems. Further interventions targeted radiation safety, the maintenance of equipment, the establishment of guidelines and the provision of training courses. More impressions:
