The last decade in Kenya gives much cause for pride and though we must recognize that there remain a number of problematic situations, I see real signs of optimism spreading across the continent of Africa.
Within this context, the Aga Khan Development Network has decided to accelerate and enlarge its activities in Kenya and in Eastern Africa generally. In the economic development field, we are extending our activities significantly in industry, in financial institutions and in tourism. In the social sector in the next years, it is expected that we will invest up to $80 million to turn the Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi into a focal, tertiary care hospital serving the whole of East Africa.
