CAIRO: The new Minister of Health Adel al-Adawy said on Saturday in his first statement after being sworn in as minister that doctor demands for a cadre are legitimate.
He also told Youm7, just after entering the ministry building, that postponing a response to the doctors’ demands caused the strike.
“I will study the entire cadre law to look for controversial articles and reach solutions that satisfy all sides,” the minister said.
Adawy also promised to improve medical services for citizens.
“Egyptian citizens’ health is my priority because we cannot ask a sick person for accomplishments,” he said.
