​​Celebrating 60 years of quality healthcare

Aga Khan University Hospital is celebrating 60 years of its existence since the hospital first opened its doors as a community hospital on September 10, 1958 offering healthcare services to all irrespective of faith, gender and ethnic origin. From a modest secondary hospital, it has grown into an internationally accredited academic medical centre of na​tio​​nal and regional importance.

In July, the hospital launched activities to celebrate its 60th anniversary themed ‘First from the Beginning’. The celebrations are set to last for four months and will highlight the hospital’s development journey since it was established to the now reputable teaching, tertiary and referral healthcare facility offering super-specialty services to residents of the East Africa region and beyond.

Part of the celebrations activities are aimed at benefitting members of the public through free medical camps in different counties, free surgeries for those at the greatest need drawn from the medical camps and other staff engagement activities. For these community engagement activities, the hospital is working with relevant stakeholders to ensure that they benefit those that need them most.​​

A photo exhibition of the Hospital’s history, milestones and other major achievements to date has been set up at the Heart and Cancer Centre, and is open to members of the public. It illustrates developments over the years, and how research and training has seen the hospital evolve into a pioneer in many respects, setting the pace for healthcare in the region. ​
