The joint committee of Health and Higher Education Affairs committees convened a special hearing to host SMART CONSULT’s President and Chief Scientist at the headquarters of the Egyptian Parliament in February 2018 to discuss his remarks on the draft of new clinical trial legislation submitted by the Egyptian government to the Parliament for review and voting. Dr. El Fiky briefed the joint committee members during the hearing on global regulatory policy, GCP guidelines, medical monitoring, pharmacovigilance regulations and best practices governing clinical trial conduct. Dr. El Fiky continues to be sought out by members of the Egyptian parliament to offer advise as Egypt approaches this new milestone in healthcare delivery and research policy in the country affecting multiple sectors of the society including the academia, public health and foreign investment.
