CAIRO: A total of 1,000 medical units will be established by 2017 in Egypt’s poorest villages per a World Bank loan, an official source at the Health Ministry told Youm7 Sunday.

The World Bank approved the $75-million loan in November 2014, according to the State Information Service, but passed it last September after President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi approved the conditions of the loan.

The loan will be paid back over 20 years at an interest of 2.5 percent. Meanwhile, the Health Ministry has formed a central administration to manage grants and loans, Youm7 reported.

The project aims to serve 1,000 villages that will benefit from the healthcare promotion.
