GIG together with MBM (Masr Bela Marad, which translates as “Egypt without illness“) an Egyptian NGO and a donation of Siemens AG and Siemens Energy AG set up in Shubra El Khema a Smart clinic. This clinic is providing high-quality care for around 15,000 patients yearly in an area lacking access to healthcare.
The clinic is an example of participatory and inclusive development, where all partners are working together
for a common goal – to improve access to health when needed more than ever.
We aim to establish the Careables programme in the Smart Clinic to train engineers, makers, designers, doctors, and nurses to improve medical devices’ access to all people.
