EGYPT – Organon, a global company focused on women’s health, has launched its presence in Egypt in a move to transform and further prioritized women’s health in the country.
The focus on diversity both on an internal and external level will lead generational change in the healthcare industry of Egypt.
Organon takes a broad view of women’s health, with the goal of expanding beyond reproductive health to help address the conditions that are unique to women, but also conditions that disproportionately affect women or have an especially heavy burden on them.
“As the MENAT region continues to grow and is expected to expand further in the coming years, we recognize the need to focus on women-specific health conditions and treatments that impact the everyday life of women,” managing director Ramy Koussa of Organon (Mena and Turkey) in Organon, said.
“This launch will not only transform women’s healthcare, but will also create over 400 job opportunities across MENAT.”

The Organon executive leadership team rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to mark the first day of active trading.
Dr. Amira Tahio, Maternal and Child Health Consultant and Former Director for African Center for Women’s Health Services, Egypt is hopeful about Organon’s presence in the market.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to spot the light on our aim, to see women in Egypt enjoy a health infancy with no gender gap in morbidities and mortality. A health adolescent life free from violence and genital mutilation. Fertility by choice and not by chance,” managing director Ramy Koussa of Organon (Mena and Turkey) in Organon, said in a statement.
“Lastly but not the least, a healthy active reproductive life in combating breast cancer and its health consequences.”
Organon Egypt’s Lead, Tarek Aboueleinein, stated: “Our launch symbolizes the new set of resources and services now available for women’s health in the country, in line with the presidential initiative. Looking forward to embarking on this journey and materializing the added value that this company can bring to women’s lives in Egypt as well as the whole world.”
