Aga Khan Hospitals Sign Ksh. 2.8 Billion Agreement With AFD

Coastweek--As part of one of the largest expansions of quality health care services in East Africa, the Aga Khan Development Network and the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) have signed agreements for a total of US$19.5 million towards the improvement and expansion of the Aga Khan Hospitals in both Mombasa and Kisumu.

The total project cost is $27.8 million (over Kenyan Shilling 2.8 billion).

The balance investment of $8.3 million is a grant from the Aga Khan Development Network.

The Aga Khan Hospital, Mombasa major expansion, will include the establishment of an invasive cardiology programme, a day care chemotherapy centre (established in 2015), a neonatal high dependency unit and a niche in rehabilitation medicine.

Additionally, the Aga Khan Hospital Mombasa will expand its footprint in the Coast Region by establishing an additional ten Outreach Health Centres during the planned period.

The Aga Khan Hospital Outreach Health Centres serve as “hubs” for the AKDN’s expanding East Africa Integrated Health System in the region, which is dedicated to providing high-quality health coverage at affordable prices to an economically diverse population.

Aga Khan Health Service and AFD also signed a second agreement for a US$ 266,000 (Euro 250,000) grant from AFD for capacity building in palliative care in all four hospitals in East Africa (Aga Khan University Hospital, Nairobi, Aga Khan Hospital Mombasa, Aga Khan Hospital Kisumu and Aga Khan Hospital Dar es Salaam).
