Aga Khan on his vision for Uganda’s healthcare | monitor.co.ug

One milestone along that journey occurred earlier this week when I received the first charter ever granted to an International University in Tanzania.

That ceremony reflected, I believe, AKU’s record of producing outstanding East African graduates. And it sets the stage for expanding the university in the years ahead through a series of new schools, new faculties, new institutes and other facilities throughout the East African region.

Here in Uganda, we will focus on achieving international levels of health care – especially for non-communicable diseases, such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes.

With the cooperation of the government, we plan to establish a new Aga Khan University Hospital in Kampala – as the president has just mentioned as well as several medical centres in other places across the country. Our goal, with this integrated health system, is that no Ugandan should have to leave the country to seek quality medical care.
