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
In Tanzania, the expansion of AKDN’s East Africa Integrated Health System includes an investment of $83 million, to establish a network of 35 outreach health centres and an expansion of the Aga Khan Hospital.
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.
AKDN has mobilised over $1 billion to support a number of institutions and programmes involved in the social, economic and cultural development of Afghanistan.
