El Hossein El Ouardi (Arabic: الحسين الوردي - born 22 September 1954) is a Moroccan politician of the Party of Progress and Socialism. From 3 January 2012 to 24 October 2017, he held the position of Minister of Health in Abdelilah Benkirane's government.[1][2][3][4][5]

In January 2014, El Ouardi was physically assaulted while exiting the parliament in Rabat. His assailants were members of the pharmacists union/lobby, and one of them was the brother-in-law of Fouad Ali El Himma, the influential advisor and close-friend of Mohammed VI, in addition to being the cousin of the Party of Authenticity and Modernity female Mayor of Marrakesh.[6] The incident resulted in minor injuries for the minister.
