Dr. Shafi called AKU a national asset for Pakistan, noting that it was recently ranked one of the world’s top 100 universities in public health. AKU operates four hospitals as well as 290 outreach clinics across Pakistan. Together, they serve 1.5 million patients in a typical year. Thanks to the University’s patient welfare program, which is supported by gifts from generous donors, even the poorest patients are able to receive care at AKU health facilities. In fact, one in 10 patients at the Aga Khan University Hospital earns less than $2 per day. USA Chicago

Students at AKU also benefit from the generosity of donors: 70 percent of AKU students receive financial assistance or pay no tuition in exchange for working at AKU after graduation at market salaries. To date, nearly 13,000 individuals – two-thirds of whom are women – have graduated from the University in Pakistan. Chicago Agha Khan University Chicago Agha Khan University
