AKHS in South Asia
The first institution in the Aga Khan Health Service, Pakistan (AKHS,P) was a 42-bed maternity hospital - formerly known as the Janbai Maternity Home, which opened in Karachi in 1924. Today, while maintaining that early focus on maternal and child health, AKHS,P also offers services that range from primary health care to diagnostic services and curative care. It reaches over 700,000 people in rural and urban Sindh, Punjab, Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral. As the largest not-for-profit private health care system in Pakistan, its goal is to supplement the Government's efforts in health care provision, especially in the areas of maternal and child health and primary health care.
