Expansion of Aga Khan Hospital in Dar es Salaam
The Aga Khan Hospital in Dar es Salaam has embarked on a major expansion programme to offer high-quality medical care and increase its capacity as a teaching institute within the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN). The scheme, with a preliminary budget of over $50 million, is the largest private health care project to be undertaken in Tanzania to date.
H.H. The Aga Khan arived in Dar es Salam, Tanzania for AKDN work and official givernment meetings. He will be visiting Arusha also where the AKU will have its East African main campus.
The restoration of Forodhani Park in Zanzibar's historic stone town has been completed, thanks to a $2.4 million (over Sh3 billion) funding by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC)).
The popular outing place, one of the attractive features in the Isles will be inaugurated later this month.
The restoration project has transformed the historic park - one of the last open spaces in the densely populated world heritage site - and upgraded its social and recreational amenities.
