Aga Khan Health Services
The Aga Khan Health Services (AKHS) is one of three agencies of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) that support activities in health. The others are the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) and the Aga Khan University (AKU). Together, the three agencies provide quality health care to five million people annually and work closely on planning, training and resource development. AKHS also works with the Aga Khan Education Services (AKES) and the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH) on the integration of health issues into specific projects. More
Areas of Activity
The AKDN operates one of the largest non-profit, private healthcare systems in the developing world. It consists of 200+ health centres (basic and comprehensive) and hospitals, including 14 ISO-certified and/or JCI-accredited hospitals.
AKDN has mobilised over $1 billion to support a number of institutions and programmes involved in the social, economic and cultural development of Afghanistan.
The 6 bridges constructed by AKDN over the Pyanj River connect mountainous, isolated communities living along the Afghan-Tajik frontier, allowing thousands of Afghans to access cross-border health services.
