In Pakistan, the University health network includes the 710-bed Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, four woman and child hospitals with a total of 213 beds, and 290 outreach medical centres in more than 100 cities across the country.


In East Africa, the University health network includes the 300-bed Aga Khan University Hospital, Nairobi and 50 medical and diagnostic centres in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.


In Afghanistan, the University manages the 169-bed French Medical Institute for Mothers and Children (FMIC). This was launched in 2006 as a partnership with the governments of France and Afghanistan and the French NGO La Chaîne de l’Espoir. The partners have invested more than $100 million in FMIC, which to date has treated more than 1.5 million patients. The FMIC laboratory is linked to the University’s laboratories in Pakistan, giving patients in Afghanistan access to a complete menu of medical tests.
