Public health became a commonly espoused agenda during the Covid-19 pandemic among global, regional, and national actors in the Middle East. Capacity development, good governance, and public health discourses do highlight the glaring inequalities of healthcare provision within and across Arab states in a global capitalist system. In Egypt, government responses were centred on an urgently and hastily adopted public health agenda. The government coordinated its infectious disease control policy with intergovernmental organizations such as the WHO and UNICEF. From infectious disease guidelines to vaccines, the existence of the Egyptian state’s anti-coronavirus national strategy is indebted to external sources of authority, know-how, and resources.
