  • Population ~ Million 82
  • Population Growth Rate: 1.9%
  • Net Migration Rate:
    • 21 migrants/ 100,000 population
  • Literacy = 71.4%

current situation for egypt
Current situation for Egypt
  • pPCI rate is around 5 – 8 %
  • No accurate data available
  • Different types of hospitals :
    • University hospitals
    • Military hospitals
    • Government/medical insurance hospitals
    • Private hospitals
  • National EMS number exists but is not widely used
  • Government hospital cathlabs are not open 24/7
  • Private hospitals are well structured some of them cathlabs available 24/7
  • Patient are not aware of AMI symptoms and importance of Time. Patients rather wait for “their” physician
  • Interventional cardiology is a rather new discipline
  • Lack of overall awareness with key stakeholders on “Time is muscle” for AMI patients

Reperfusion Therapies

P.Widimsky et al. November 19, 2009. Reperfusion therapy for ST elevation acute myocardial infarction in Europe: description of the current situation in 30 countries. Eur. Heart.J.doi:10.1093/eurheartj/ehp492


current situation patient pathway





Local hospital


Current situation : patient pathway
  • Calls cardiologist
  • Calls private hospital
  • Calls physician from private insurance
  • Calls EMS
  • Only ambulance from specialised cardiac hospitals have a physician on board
  • Not properly trained
  • ECG only on board in new ambulances
  • No clear unified protocol
  • Will drive patient to nearest hospitals
  • If private insurance : will go to private hospital
  • Not all are open 24/7
  • Lack of awareness of how to treat an AMI patient
  • Cathlab not prepared for AMI patients
  • Logistic obstacles
sfl project proposal
SFL Project proposal
    • Country steering committee with key stakeholders
      • spokespeople for projects – communicate with media, during congresses and with government
      • Select people who endorse, support and drive the projects
      • Key spokesperson : Prof . Mohamed Sobhy
      • National coordinator/ Project manager : Dr Ahmed El Chal
      • Liaise with central SFL committee
      • Representatives of sponsoring companies
  • Task forces in 5 regions
    • Alexandria :
      • best organised region
    • Great Cairo region :
      • already individual projects in 3 University hospitals and a project in the National Heart Institute on AMI data gathering
    • Delta region and Upper Egypt :
      • rural areas, key focus areas for government
    • Military Hospitals Group :
      • strong network, very disciplined, low on bureaucracy, easy to implement protocols

October 2010

  • For each region :
    • decide on key stakeholders
    • Presentation to “sell” concept to make sure everyone agrees and sees the importance of the project
    • Stakeholders need to decide on Task Force
    • Select pilot center and develop into “centre of excellence”
    • Work with “train the trainer concept”
    • Develop detailed plan
    • Gather baseline data
    • Develop budget
    • Set clear objectives Define milestones and deliverables
    • Put measurements in place
    • Regular feedback into country Steering Committee
stent for life project egypt objectives
Stent for Life Project – Egypt Objectives
  • Integrate SFL into National Cardiology Program
  • Build Regional Network and Infrastructure (EMS)
  • Optimize Cath Lab Staffing and Work Organization
  • Allocate Budget (Procedure reimbursement & 24/7 staff remuneration)
  • Establish National ACS/AMI Registry
  • Increase Disease Awareness (Educational campaign to government, payers and lay public)
  • EMS staff training is more important that the EMS staff structure (trained nurses suitable for the triage and transport of AMI patients)
  • EMS ambulances: equipped by resuscitation facilities and by a portable 12-leads ECG.
  • Raising public awareness about heart attacks and importance to reach the nearest medical centre.
  • Criteria of selection of patient receiving PCI for SFL program.
  • Create a database of current PPCI practice patterns in Egypt in order to serve as a benchmark for further assessment.
  • Improve the performance of centers doing PPCI.
  • Adequate training of ER & all concerned staff.
  • Increase patients awareness of the seriousness of chest pain & the dangers of delaying adequate medical care.
  • Improving emergency services with regional maps for different centers.
stakeholder management
Stakeholder management

Barriers :

No clear mapping cath labs/population

Lack of knowledge and implementation of ESC guidelines

Mindset change : IC is also a discipline that needs to be available 24/7

Infrastructure change

cathlab 24/7

clear protocol for EMS

Action items


Continue with training on ESC guidelines

Use local meetings /symposia/media to create awareness

Select projects that give “quick” results – communicate results

Organise local stakeholder meetings to get buy-in from start
