He said their expansion programme will cost the three branches more than 40m USD in total, adding that the Aga Khan work in Dar es Salaam has already started.

The meeting was a follow up of the Secretary General’s visit to His Highness the Aga Khan on 11th November 2016, where the two met to discuss the possibility of expanding the Aga Khan Integrated Health Systems across all the EAC Partner States, especially in secondary cities of Kisumu, Mombasa, Arusha, Mwanza, Entebbe, Jinja, Butare and Ngozi, among others.

During the meeting, Ambassador Mfumukeko had also requested His Highness the Aga Khan to support their staff to build their capacity through scholarship programmes and also in different projects.
