The Aga Khan Medical and Diagnostic Centre in Naryn
Increasing access to high-quality health care and promoting quality of life
According to national statistics the population in Naryn Oblast has limited access to health care services and faces health concerns, such as child and maternal mortality that are higher than national average rates for the rest of the country. In response to this challenge and to increase access to high-quality health care and promote quality of life by maintaining international standard of health service, the Aga Khan Health Services established the Aga Khan Medical and Diagnostic Centre (AKMDC) in Naryn which was inaugurated in May 2016. AKMDC is a private and not-for-profit consultation and diagnostic centre. The Centre, operating under a licence issued by the Ministry of Health of Kyrgyzstan, is staffed with qualified doctors, nurses and paramedics to provide reliable and affordable services in gynaecology, obstetrics, cardiology, family medicine and paediatrics. Equipped with a general x-ray, Doppler ultrasound, ECG services, gastro-endoscopy services with generous support of the Government of Canada and the AKDN, the Centre offers full laboratory services including biochemistry, pathology and haematology tests. A well-equipped and well-stocked high quality pharmacy is available to accommodate to the patient’s needs. The centre will soon have a dental and ophthalmology clinic that will provide services to patients of all ages.
