THE Aga Khan Health Services has promised to enhance cooperation between them and the government of Zanzibar in ensuring better health services in the Isles.
Speaking in Dar es Salaam yesterday, the Associate Dean Medical College at The Aga Khan University, Mr Hussein Kidanto said this is the beginning of cooperation between the two parts to ensure that patients from Zanzibar can come and benefit from the services offered and also contribute to reducing maternal and child mortality.
“Maternal and child mortality is decreasing due to availability of quality services and we will be able to cooperate well in this,” he said during the visit of Zanzibar’s Minister of Health, Mr Hamad Rashid to the hospital.
He said the visit of Zanzibar government to the Aga Khan Hospital is set to link their sites so that the people of Zanzibar can get good and standard treatment and at the same time reduce the cost of sending them abroad for treatment which can be done in the country.
“We thank the Aga Khan staff for their support and I hope this cooperation will not end here and hope that our students will be able to get a chance to come and learn from you so that they can increase their skills and provide better health services to citizens,” he said.
