Cairo - Post Report Question and Answers

Are there any particular mental health issues that tend to crop up at post, such as Seasonal Affective Disorder (winter blues)?

It's a temperate climate, so it's really the pollution that keeps people inside in the winter and the heat during the summer. I have not seen Seasonal Affective Disorder be an issue. - Aug 2022


Some people deal with anxiety from all the people and noise. The city is full to the brim with people and there is noise 24 hours a day with honking horns and emergency vehicle noise. - Dec 2021


I don't think so. - Jun 2018


Fortunately, it's sunny almost every day in Cairo. It does rain 2-3 times per year, usually in October/November. - Sep 2017
