Monday, December 14, 2015: Land for the construction of a third Aga Khan University Hospital has been acquired in Uganda.
The Aga Khan and President Yoweri Museveni are expected to preside over a ground-breaking ceremony this week.
The Aga Khan Development Network has committed $15 billion (Sh1.5 trillion) for expansion in East Africa.
Aga Khan University President Firoz Rasul on Sunday said like the two hospitals in Nairobi and Karachi, Pakistan — both of which have earned accreditation from the US Joint Commission International — the one in Kampala would provide the best possible treatment and care.
Its first phase comprising a 150-bed wing will be completed in 2020. It is expected to expand to a 600-bed hospital.
