Introduction

Several AKDN agencies and affiliates are active in the USA. Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A. (AKF USA), established in 1981 as a private, non-denominational, not-for-profit international organization is committed to the struggle against hunger, disease and illiteracy, primarily in Africa and Asia.

Focus Humanitarian Assistance, which provides aid after disasters usually in developing world contexts, was involved in relief operations after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

The Aga Khan Programme for Islamic Architecture, at Harvard and MIT, works to improve the study of Islamic architecture and cultures while the on-line archive and forum ArchNet.org provides a global resource on the study of architecture of the Islamic world.
