Combating the spread of the disease – to reduce the spread of diseases such as virus C, the Egyptian Cure Bank provides sterilization devices such as modern autoclaves to dental clinics and hospitals affiliated with NGOs.
**Health awareness programs** – Health awareness is one of the most important means that help prevent diseases, so it is necessary to spread health awareness in the community and establish training courses to educate employees of private hospitals cooperating with the bank.
** Periodic examinations and early detection of diseases** – This program seeks early detection of diseases that do not result in clear signs or symptoms that call for complaint, especially in its early stages, whenever the disease is detected early, doctors succeed in controlling and treating it at a lower cost, and this is done through a comprehensive periodic examination of individuals registered with the Egyptian Cure Bank.
