    In Summary
    • President Kibaki 50 Kenyans die daily as a result of cancer related complications.
    • 82,000 Kenyans are diagnosed annually with the disease.
    • Heart pathologies and cancer are becoming increasingly common but dedicated medical facilities have been scarce.
    • The Aga Khan Heart and Cancer Centre cost US$50.4m for which the Aga Khan University Hospital received a US$35.3m loan from AFD.
    • With the programme, 30,000 should be treated in the coming 20 years.
    Kenya has consolidated its position as a regional medical hub with the opening of a Sh4.5 billion ($50 million) heart and cancer centre in Nairobi on Monday.

    The centre at the Aga Khan University Hospital is equipped with the latest screening and treatment technologies. It will also be the first in the region to do research on heart and cancer diseases that is Africa specific.

    "The centre will offer specialised fellowship training in heart and cancer diseases - training that is not available in the East African region today.

    "We are going to recruit outstanding faculty from around the world, including East Africans who have been studying and practising abroad," said the university's chancellor, The Aga Khan.

    Go a long way

    President Kibaki, who officially opened the centre, said it would go a long way in alleviating the rising incidence of non-communicable diseases in Kenya and sub-Saharan Africa.

    "There is no doubt that cardiovascular diseases and cancers are increasingly becoming a big health challenge.

    "About 50 Kenyans die daily from various forms of cancers while about 80,000 cases are diagnosed each year," said the President.

    Several sections of the new centre are headed by Kenyans and East Africans who have had advanced training and work experience abroad.

    The hospital's chief executive, Ms Asmita Gillani, said a deliberate effort was made to seek out people from the diaspora to join the centre in a brain gain strategy.

    The facility, a five-storey building built with the assistance of the French government, has also moved to digital X-ray filming which allows medical specialists within the Aga Khan network to make online diagnoses.

    These technologies, said The Aga Khan, are expensive. "That is why the Aga Khan University Hospital, through its Patient Welfare Programme, provides an average subsidy of 50 per cent to patients who are unable to afford the care," he said.

    Because of non-communicable diseases which the World Health Organisation says will be a future epidemic, especially in poor countries, The Aga Khan said there is need for the region to be imaginative in health financing.

    "In the long run we will need an imaginative combination of cost redistribution, endowment funding, credit and insurance offerings and other innovative financial products," he said.

    President Kibaki said although the government had increased its spending on health from Sh15 billion eight years ago to about Sh60 billion, the potential benefits had been eroded by the high population growth rate.

    He said the government will establish cancer centres outside Nairobi and modernise facilities at Kenyatta National Hospital.

    Ukiona huyo jamaa kulia yupo basi fahamu kwamba kuna rushwa ya hali ya juu. Waafrika tumekuwa wafuata upepo na kutukuza visivyotukukika. Hivi kweli Kenya as a nation wameshindwa kufanya haya hadi wamtumie huyu mwizi?

    For more information on high Aga Khan networks operate go to www.akdn.org or wikipedia.

    The Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) is a group of private, non-denominational development agencies that seek to empower communities and individuals to improve living conditions and opportunities, in sub-Saharan Africa, Central and South Asia, and the Middle East. Founded and guided by Prince Karim Aga Khan IV, the Network focuses on health, education, culture, rural development, institution-building and the promotion of economic development. The AKDN is dedicated to improving living conditions and opportunities for the poor, without regard to their faith, origin or gender. Its annual budget for not-for-profit endeavours exceeds US$500 million, and it employs over 70 thousand paid staff, mostly in developing countries.[SUP][1][/SUP]
    The Aga Khan Foundation, including the Aga Khan Rural Support Programme and the Mountain Societies Development Support Programme, the Aga Khan University, Aga Khan Health Services, Aga Khan Education Services, and the Aga Khan Planning and Building Services, operate in social development.
    The Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development with its affiliates, the Tourism Promotion Services, Industrial Promotion Services, and Financial Services, seek to strengthen the role of the private sector in developing countries by supporting private sector initiatives in the development process. The Fund and the Foundation also encourage government policies that foster what the Aga Khan first called an "enabling environment" of favourable legislative and fiscal structures.
    The Aga Khan Trust for Culture co-ordinates the Imamat's cultural activities. Its programmes include The Aga Khan Award for Architecture, the Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme, and the Education and Culture Programme. The Trust also provides financial support for the Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States.
    While each agency pursues its own mandate, all of them work together within the overarching framework of the Aga Khan Development Network so that their different pursuits can interact and reinforce one another. Their common goal is to help the poor achieve a level of self-reliance whereby they are able to plan their own livelihoods and help those even more needy than themselves. A central feature of the AKDN's approach to development is to design and implement strategies in which its different agencies participate in particular settings. To pursue their mandates, AKDN institutions rely on the energy, dedication, and skill of volunteers as well as remunerated professionals, and draw upon the talents of people of all faiths.

    [h=2]AKDN Agencies[/h]AKDN consists of the following organisations:
    [h=2]Long-term Commitment[/h]Development models require time to demonstrate their effectiveness and to enable local communities to take on full responsibility for their own future development. The AKDN agencies, therefore, make a long-term commitment to the areas in which they work, guided by the philosophy that a humane, sustainable environment must reflect the choices made by people themselves of how they live and wish to improve their prospects in harmony with their environment. Sustainability is, thus, a central consideration from the outset.
    The experience of the past three decades of development effort shows that even when government, non-government, commercial organisations, and international development agencies work together, they are not able to meet most, let alone all, of the needs for shelter, health, and sustenance of the world's populations. AKDN institutions work in close partnership with the world's major national and international aid and development agencies. The AKDN itself is an independent self-governing system of agencies, institutions, and programmes under the leadership of the Ismaili Imamat. One of their sources of support are the Ismaili community with its tradition of philanthropy, voluntary service and self-reliance, and the leadership and material underwriting of the hereditary Imam and Imamat resources.
    [h=2]Philosophy of AKDN[/h]The Aga Khan Development Network is working to improve the quality of life of the people. Exemplifying the same is the network of institutions active in more than 35 underdeveloped countries to provide support in the fields of health care, education and economics, and has become the symbol of hope for the under-privileged people.
    Highlighting the functions and philosophy of Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), The Aga Khan said,
    "The engagement of the Imamat in development is guided by Islamic ethics, which bridge faith and society. It is on this premise that I established the Aga Khan Development Network. This Network of agencies, known as the AKDN, has long been active in many areas of Asia and Africa to improve the quality of life of all who live there. These areas are home to some of the poorest and most diverse populations in the world."
