Aga Khan health facilities expand in Gilgit-Baltistan

Gilgit, Pakistan, 25 November 2021 – Two state-of-the-art health facilities – an expansion of the Aga Khan Medical Centre in Gilgit and construction of a new Aga Khan Health Centre in Hunza – are underway to ensure continuity of quality healthcare services to the people of Gilgit-Baltistan. Aga Khan facilities have been providing quality care and services in the region since 1974 and the current expansion complements the Government’s efforts to attain Sustainable Development Goals in health.

“Not only will people of Hunza and its surrounding benefit from this health centre, but it will be beneficial to the entire region of Gilgit-Baltistan,” said Gilgit-Baltistan Legislative Assembly Speaker Syed Amjad Ali Zaidi at the groundbreaking ceremony.

This year, Aga Khan health facilities in Gilgit-Baltistan have added new services including advanced diagnostics, ophthalmology, cardiology, nephrology, urology and dermatology. They have also supported the Government’s COIVD-19 vaccination drive and established pandemic-focused ICU services backed with Tele-ICU – a first of its kind in the region.
