  • In northern Pakistan, over 60 Aga Khan health centres provide 750,000 people with quality care and diagnostics. They operate on a “hub-and-spokes” model that consolidates facilities and services into larger centres. Through teleconsultation, smaller sites consult with and refer serious cases to the bigger centres, to ensure top-level expertise and technologies without long travel or time lost.

It reaches over 700,000 people in rural and urban Sindh, Punjab, Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral.
