An OPIC loan is supporting the renovation and expansion of the facility that will include the introduction of advanced equipment, a center for medical innovation and a program to subsidize healthcare for poorer patients throughout Pakistan. Pakistan’s Higher Education Commission (HEC) recently named Aga Khan the number one medical university in the country.
