The Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi

Established in 1985 as the primary teaching site of the Aga Khan University's Faculty of Health Sciences, Aga Khan University Hospital in Karachi Pakistan is committed to providing diagnosis of disease and team management of patient care. These services are backed up by the highest doctor-to-patient and nurse-to-patient ratios and support services. The University Hospital's multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and care ensures a continuum of safe and high quality care for patients - with all services under one roof.

A broad range of secondary and tertiary care is available in the 500-bed University Hospital to all patients in need. Those who are unable to pay for treatment receive generous assistance through a variety of subsidies and the Hospital Patient Welfare Programme.

In 2000, AKUH became the first teaching hospital in Pakistan to be completely ISO 9002 certified. It has since received IS0 9001 certification. The AKUH quality assurance programme serves as a model for other health institutions in the private and public sectors and in the Aga Khan Development Network.

The Aga Khan Hospitals are part of an international referral network providing primary, secondary and tertiary level care. Doctors need not be affiliated to the Aga Khan Hospitals to refer patients to its comprehensive healthcare network.
