AbstractThis paper serves to examine the healthcare system in modern day Egypt in relation to the healthcare system present in the United States. It is a compilation of information gained from travelling to Egypt and observing and independent research. The role of preventive medicine and early access to healthcare in Egyptian society are analyzed in order to gain a better understanding of the early steps that are taken towards a healthier society. The focus is particularly on the health and well being of women and children and how the healthcare system is addressing their issues. This paper serves as an as an intro for later works where each of the issues that addressed, women's health, children's health, and the role of preventive medicine will be studied in greater depth. These analyses will be important so that one may understand what issues a healthcare professional will face when providing healthcare to people in the region.
