Choose Trusted Quality Care

The Aga Khan University Hospitals, Medical Centres, Laboratories, Diagnostic Facilities, and Pharmacies are following strict infection control and safety protocols to keep you safe during the pandemic waves. At the Aga Khan University Hospital, we have dedicated facilities for COVID-19 patients; all other patients are treated in separate areas.

Our experts continue to be at the forefront, providing outstanding care, educating the public, advising the government and other health institutions, and conducting research to better understand the virus and its impact on health. Our Hospital was the first private hospital in Pakistan to join the Government's free-vaccination programme and has continued the service, free-of-cost, since early 2021. To date, we have administered over 100,000 vaccines, including boosters to our healthcare workers and members of the general public.

During this difficult time as always, we are committed to providing the same high-quality care for which we have always been known. ​

COVID-19 is a disease caused by the virus SARS CoV-2.
It spreads through droplets that are released when people sneeze, cough, and even talk.   

It usually causes a mild to moderate respiratory infection; however, it may lead to severe complications and fatality, especially in the unvaccinated individuals, the elderly, and those who are immunocompromised or have other chronic diseases. 

Vaccines with boosters repeated as recommended, have been known to reduce the risk of infection and the severity of the diseases.
