Africa Review - Aga Khan heart and cancer centre opens in Nairobi

Kenya-based Aga Khan University Hospital has opened a new Heart and Cancer Centre.

The opening ceremony Monday was presided over by President Mwai Kibaki and His Highness the Aga Khan, the spiritual leader of the Ismaili community.

President Kibaki called for concerted efforts in the fight and treatment of cancer, noting that 50 Kenyans died daily as a result of the disease, while 82,000 were diagnosed annually.

His Highness the Aga Khan, who is also the Chancellor of the university hospital, said the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) will continue to partner with governments, the financial sector and the civil society in meeting the demands and challenges posed by the technological changes in the health sector.
