The project worth 167bn/-, which will be commissioned by 2018, will allow the 175-beds hospital to provide best health care in non-communicable diseases. Ms Mwalimu, who was the guest of honour at the event, expressed gratitude to the Aga Khan Health Services Institution which owns the Aga Khan hospitals, for its contribution in development of health services in the country.

“The new project is truly a significant investment towards health sector public partnership investment,” she said.

Ms Mwalimu observed that the non-communicable diseases were on increase pointing out junk foods and lifestyle changes as the main cause of the diseases. Chair of the Board Executive Committee of Aga Khan Health Services, Princess Zahra Aga Khan, said her institution came up with the idea of expanding the hospital in Dar es Salaam following the increase of cases of non-communicable diseases.
