Sherif Amin, an 18-year industry veteran with 12 years of experience in oncology leadership roles across MEA, is the recipient of several awards, including the 2019 Oncology President Award, 2015 CEO Innovation Award, and 2014 MENA Leadership Award. A recent appointee as country president for Novartis Egypt, Amin describes how he draws on these experiences in his new role as Novartis undertakes a global restructuring. Amin also touches on the importance that Novartis – the domestic pharma market leader – attaches to Egypt and the role it hopes to play as a trusted partner within the country’s ongoing healthcare transformation.
With a healthcare system transformation underway and an increasing governmental openness to change; there are many more opportunities for Novartis to partner here. The current healthcare transformation could bring 100 million people under the umbrella of universal health insurance, thus growing the market extensively.
