The “Egyptian vision for human rights,” to be implemented in the five years 2021-2026, “is based on fundamental pillars” including “the close link between democracy and human rights” and the “balance” between “individual rights” and social rights; among others, “health services” are “a right,” al Sisi said. “This is the first National Strategy produced by an autonomous Egyptian philosophy based on society,” the president stressed.

Al Sisi also argued that: “The Egyptian state affirms its commitment to promote and protect the right to physical integrity, personal freedom, exercise of political rights, freedom of expression.” He then admitted that the launch of the National Strategy “is nothing more than an initial step of thousands of steps towards a modern democratic state that respects and promotes the human rights of its people.”

In presenting the National Strategy, the Permanent Representative of Egypt to the United Nations in Geneva, Ahmed Gamal el-Din, listed as human rights to be protected to health, education, work, social security, food, drinking water, home, cultural and religious identities. Women, children, the disabled, and the elderly will be particular targets of protection. In a video message, the rotating president of the UN Human Rights Council, Nashat Shameem Khan, congratulated Egypt for the Strategy’s launch, describing it as a crucial step towards promoting and defending human rights in the country.
