Today the Aga Khan laid the foundation for Phase 2 of the FMIC project: the Women’s Wing which he explains is “designed to provide and inspire superior obstetric and gynaecological care here in Kabul and throughout the region.”
In this speech, the Aga Khan not only summarises the accomplishments of the FMIC hospital, including international certification, but also explains the three commitments upon which the AKDN’s healthcare programme in Afghanistan is predicated. The Aga Khan also announces plans to create “a great new Kabul International Medical Centre — a Centre of Excellence for providing tertiary care services and medical education of the highest quality. This new complex will be an intellectual and service hub for an integrated health delivery system serving the entire Central Asian region” of over 100 million people.
