The Aga Khan Health Services-Kenya and Agence Française de Développement (AFD) on Friday signed a Sh1.25 billion expansion and upgrading agreement for Kisumu and Mombasa Aga Khan hospitals.
At a colourful signing ceremony attended by Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho at the Aga Khan Hospital in Mombasa, the hospital’s Chief Executive Noorali Mimon said the agreement includes developing a cardiology programme and a day-care chemotherapy centre.
Mr Momin said the expansion programme would strengthen existing services, expand diagnostics and upgrade the quality of services and facility to international standards.
“These programmes will fit seamlessly within the Aga Khan Development Network continuum of care approach with links to Aga Khan Hospital-Nairobi.
"Additionally, AKDN will expand its footprint by establishing additional 10 Outreach Health Centres to the current three centres,” he said.
Moyez Alibhai, the chairman of the Aga Khan Health Services-Kenya described the move as a milestone towards providing better healthcare for Kenyans.
“This is a major milestone. We also want to thank our French partners. From this partnership, thousands of people have [benefited] and will benefit from modern healthcare,” said Mr Alibhai.
He said the Aga Khan hospitals in Kenya, Tanzania and more than 30 countries worldwide had received global awards for providing modern, unique healthcare services.
Under the agreement, Kisumu Aga Khan Hospital will over the next five years expand to a 90-bed facility from the current 61 beds, implement elements in cardiology and cancer programmes, expand and establish an additional 10 Outreach Health Centres.
The French Ambassador to Kenya Antoine Sivan hailed the partnership and promised that his government would continue to partner with The Aga Khan Health Services.
Governor Joho, who was the chief guest at the ceremony, praised the Aga Khan Hospital in Mombasa saying it had cooperated with the county during accidents such as one that took place at Mazeras last December.
“Doctors were already on strike, but the Aga Khan Hospital stepped in to treat our people who were involved in the Mazeras accident,” he said.
He said the development of modern equipment would save residents the trouble of travelling abroad for treatment.

JANUARY 11, BOSTON, MA—Pathfinder International is pleased to announce the award of two new grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation that have the potential to change how donors and implementers approach contraceptive access programs. The two projects, totaling nearly $10 million, will advance access to a full range of contraception, especially for adolescents and youth, through adaptive and innovative approaches.
In developing countries, more than half of all women of reproductive age want to avoid pregnancy, yet 225 million women are not using an effective method of contraception. Of the estimated 38 million sexually active adolescents in these regions, 23 million have an unmet need for modern contraception.
Pathfinder will partner with Camber Collective, YLabs, and The Center for Effective Global Action’s Behavioral Economics in Reproductive Health Initiative and build on ongoing Pathfinder projects in Tanzania, Burkina Faso, and Pakistan to implement an innovative four-phase approach to gather insights, generate and test solutions, and support adaptation and scale up. In Pakistan and Tanzania, we will also engage with local partners, Aga Khan Health Services in Tanzania and Greenstar in Pakistan, for solution development and testing in the private sector.
It has been a week and a half since my last blog post and what an eventful week and a half it has been! We left Dar es Salaam to go on Safari and next we moved onto a small city called Iringa which is about an 8.5 hour drive west from Dar es Salaam. I must admit that it was nice to get away from the busy atmosphere of the big city and get a break from the intense and unforgiving heat for a few days. Iringa has a certain unique charm that made me feel welcomed in the city wherever I went including the local restaurants, markets, and health care centers. Being able to see the view of the beautiful mountains reminded me of home while the cultural music from the churches and the public meetings of people in the street was a new but comforting experience. Overall, my impression of Iringa is positive and this was best exemplified by the nursing teaching sessions at the Aga Khan Medical Center.
