Innovative Technologies for Better Education in Egypt

To come up with innovative technology based solutions to be used to improve the level of education in pre-university education system in Egypt. Quantitatively, according to World Development Indicators Database from World Bank, Egypt has made great strides in achieving the Millennium Development Goal of universal basic education; the gross primary school enrollment ratio in 2007 was 100%. However, this is not the case when you are talking about qualitative indicators. Still the quality of education experience is low and unequally distributed The Egyptian pre-university education system is the largest in the Middle East and one of the largest worldwide. It encompasses more than 43,000 schools (public and private), some 1.6 million personnel (teachers, administrators, and others), approximately 821,000 teachers and over 16 million students. The pre-university education system is expected over the longer term to make a significant contribution to Egypt’s economy and to play an essential role in increasing its national income. 90.2% of all students in Egypt are included in the public and private education sectors (83% and 7.2%, respectively). The remaining 9.8 % of students attend Al Azhar schools.

Some key challenges faced by the Egyptian pre-university education system are given. Also given are “Call for Action” statements following each challenge area and these are possible areas you can consider with respect to developing a solution. However, in case you would like to consider a problem of your choice related to the below given problem areas, you are free to do so.

Innovative Technologies for Better Health Care System in Egypt

To come up with innovative technology based solutions to be used to improve the level of health care system in Egypt. The Egyptian health care system faces multiple challenges in improving and ensuring the health and wellbeing of the Egyptian people. The system faces not only the burden of combating illnesses associated with poverty and lack of education, but it also must respond to the increasing numbers of patients. According to the CIA World Factbook, Egyptians have a life expectancy at birth of 72.93 years, ranking 121st globally, compared to world leader Monaco at 89.68 years, and Chad at the bottom of the list at 48.69. There are 23.79 births and 4.79 deaths per 1,000 population annually; A high birth rate combined with a longer life expectancy is increasing the population pressure on the Egyptian health system. By the year 2020, it is estimated that the population of Egypt will have grown to about 92 million people. Public hospitals are limited compared to patient load. Statistics show that there are 1.7 beds and 2.83 physicians for every 1000 population. With such low ratios comes the catastrophic quality of the service provided. In fact, the deteriorating public health services for the poor in a country ravaged by privatization over the last 20 years has left millions of Egyptians plagued with some of the highest rates of liver and heart disease in the world.

Some key challenges faced by the Egyptian health care system are given. Also given are “Call for Action” statements following each challenge area and these are possible areas you can consider with respect to developing a solution. However, in case you would like to consider a problem of your choice related to the below given problem areas, you are free to do so.
