Hospitals & Medical Centres


Our focus to improve access to quality healthcare in Tajikistan has been a long-standing priority for the Aga Khan Development Network. Today, AKHS, Tajikistan operates medical and diagnostic centres, alongside outreach centres in remote parts of the country to deliver health education, provide health screenings and to offer critical care to those who it most.

Message from Dr. Husniya Dorghabekova

Chief Executive Officer, Aga Khan Health Service, Tajikistan

The Aga Khan Development Network has been working to improve the quality of healthcare in Tajikistan since 1997. The work we do at AKHS, Tajikistan builds on this legacy and follows a similar appraoch where we partner closely with the Department of Health to make a measurable impact in the geographical area of Gorno-Badakshan, which has historically experienced the poorest health outcomes.

Our focus in this effort has been to protect and promote the health status of the most vulnerable in Tajik society (i.e., women of reproductive age and children under five years of age). We are also working actively with the Government to shift the focus of the healthcare system from curative care provided in general and specialised hospitals to an emphasis on primary and family care supported by facility-based services.
