Abstract: The private health care sector plays an increasingly important role in the health systems of many low and middle-income countries. While most countries in the WHO Eastern Mediterranean Region have passed regulations related to the private health sector, little is known about the regulatory process or its comprehensiveness, effectiveness, institutional capacity and enforcement mechanisms. This report contains the findings of an assessment of the regulation of the private health sector in Egypt. It examines the existing regulatory policy and legislative framework, institutional arrangements, instruments and level of enforcement for private health care within the country. It aims to support the development of evidence-based strategies for the regulation of the private health sector in the countries of the Region
