- Under the agreement, Kisumu Aga Khan Hospital will over the next five years expand to a 90-bed facility from the current 61 beds.
- French Ambassador to Kenya Antoine Sivan hailed the partnership.
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.
