The Aga Khan Hospital, Mwanza has served the region’s community for 70 years. It started as a maternity home in 1948, became a dispensary in 1960 and later upgraded to Primary Medical Centre (PMC) in 1963. The Centre was expanded and upgraded to a full-fledged Hospital in August 2020 (as a sub-hub) with specialized care in Internal Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and Paediatrics.

The aim is to fulfil AKHST’s vision of developing integrated health systems and providing more accessible, available, and affordable health care. It is a sub-hub to a network of four health centres (spokes) spread across four locations; Bukoba, Bunda, Kahama and Geita. The Hospital and Health Centres (HCs) aims to strengthen health systems and provide geographic access and utilization of health care services for all levels of the population and offer financial access, especially to the low-income bracket of the catchment population.
