    2005, Partners for Health Reform
    A total of 716 standards in 3 categories: (69) critical standards, (322) core standards, and (325) non-core standards. To become accredited, a hospital must meet all the critical standards and reach a cumulative score of 85 percent on the core standards. The noncore standards constitute a more ambitious target that hospitals are encouraged to work toward; current accreditation requires hospitals to reach a cumulative score of 40 percent on the non-core standards. The standards are expected to serve as a catalyst for change and improvement in both the culture and practice of health care in Egypt.
