About Aga Khan University Medical College:

The AKU Medical College was established in 1983, as a part of the Aga Khan University’s Faculty of Health Sciences in Pakistan. Its programmes are tailored to international standards in curriculum, student engagement and assessment, and aim to develop clinical competence in community settings and hospitals, as well as the assessment of health and prevention of disease in communities through primary health care programmes.

About Aga Khan University School of Nursing and Midwifery:

In Pakistan, AKU’s School of Nursing and Midwifery has been a national leader for more than 30 years and has played a key role in improving the reputation and practice of the nursing profession.

The School’s impact on the development of nursing in Pakistan has been remarkable. Its curriculum has served as a template for the national nursing curriculum and its focus on community health has inspired other schools to follow its example.

In 2001, the University began offering nursing degree programmes in East Africa, and has since educated 2,100 nurses in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
