Message from BSSS Dear IFMSA-EGYPT Great Family; It is our full proud and happiness to introduce to you our proposal for hosting the 4th IFMSA-EGYPT GA for this term as one of the most important unique national events in our great association. Here in this proposal you will find all the facilities and requirements of having a great successful GA full of hard work and funny moments. It may be the 1st time to host IFMSA-EGYPT GA but we are sure of having the enough experience to host this great national event as you all tried before in many other national events hosted by BSSS. Actually an important point should be clear for all at the beginning of the proposal that Benha as all of you know is totally away from any circumstances or trouble issues among Egypt, hoping to get our safe Egypt soon..... So don't be worry during being in your 2nd city of course.
It is our honor to host this GA and we will do our best raising our great IFMSA-EGYPT image and aiming to have a memorable GA.
Waiting for you all Regards, BSSS- Benha Board

Benha in Brief Benha is located 48 km north of Cairo. It has a population of approximately 115,701 residents and is the capital of the Qalyubiyah Governate. A rail junction and trade center, Benha has cotton-ginning, rug-weaving, and foodprocessing industries. It is known for its oranges and grapes and especially for its honey, which it has produced since the middle Ages. The city was established prior to the Greeks arrived in Egypt.
Nearby are the remains of Athribis which was once the capital of the 10th Nome. Athribis was associated with the worship of the black bull. During the Roman period the city was at its greatest importance. There are little remains of the ancient town except for traces of temples that date from the 18th to the 26th Dynasties. There is also an extensive Graeco-Roman cemetery. Some 26th to 30th Dynasty silver ingots and jewelry that were found at the Athribis site that are now in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Benha is not typically frequented by foreign tourists.
