When the World Health Organisation requested a second video from one of the Joint Commission International (JCI)-accredited organisations to highlight World Patient Safety Day (17 September 2020), JCI approached the Aga Khan Hospital in Dar as Salaam. The result is a video, made at the Aga Khan Hospital, highlighting this year’s theme: “Health Worker Safety – A priority for patient safety”.
Due to COVID-19 and the accompanying lockdown measures, children around the world have been unable to go to school -- in some countries for as long as six months. The Aga Khan Foundation and the Aga Khan Education Services have been at the forefront of responding to this educational crisis. By co-designing new solutions with communities, educators and learners worldwide, they have adapted their education programming to ensure children can continue to learn, develop and grow during these uncertain times.
From May 2017 to April 2020, the Aga Khan Foundation and it partners undertook the Improving Adolescents’ Lives in Afghanistan programme to work with over 176,720 adolescents and young adults in the Afghan central highlands, helping them to gain the confidence and skills and opportunities necessary to act as effective agents of change in their communities.
