Al Borg Laboratories Offers 10,000 Tests for Egyptian Community
Al Borg Laboratories, the Middle East's largest medical testing group, has announced that it will start offering subsidized medical laboratory testing as part of its new Charitable Diagnosis (CD) program. In its pilot phase, Al Borg will offer up to 10,000 tests, with a view to establish a continuous program of sustainable wellbeing to the needy patient communities in Egypt. In order for this effort to reach the right target patients, Al Borg has partnered with a number of reputable non-governmental charitable organizations that will identify and refer, through their field work, beneficiaries most in need of this service as part of their wider charitable healthcare programs. Al Borg will seek to complement the effort of such organizations through its CD self-funded initiative in an effort to extend their scope of services to encompass medical care. Tests will be offered to patients for a nominal administrative fee of two Egyptian Pounds per test.
"Al Borg Laboratories believes that it is its responsibility to contribute to the wellbeing of the Egyptian community. Hence, CD aims at bringing top class diagnostic services by an internationally accredited Egyptian lab to thousands of patients across Egypt who cannot otherwise access and afford paying for these tests" said Dr. Ahmed El Saifi, Chairman of Al Borg Laboratories. He added "The tests will cover a spectrum of the most widespread diseases in Egypt including diabetes and various liver diseases".
