The University Hospital will provide world-class care and medical education for Ugandans
December 17, 2015 – AKU: The Aga Khan University announced today it will build a teaching hospital in Kampala to provide Ugandans with health care and higher education of world-class quality.
The Aga Khan University Hospital in Kampala will train specialist doctors, nurses and other health professionals capable of leading the improvement of health care within the country. The decision comes in response to a request by His Excellency President Museveni, whose government has granted land in the Nakawa area of Kampala on which to build the hospital. AKUH Kampala will join the Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi as one of the only hospitals in sub-Saharan Africa to meet rigorous international quality standards.
“We believe that with investments such as this and many others by the Government and other private sector actors, we shall soon be able to have all the health care needs attended to from within Uganda, with no need to spend time and money going for treatment abroad,” said the Right Honourable Ruhakana Rugunda, Prime Minister of the Republic of Uganda speaking at the land grant and initiation ceremony at Kampala’s Serena Hotel.
