The Aga Khan University, School of Nursing and Midwifery, is an establishment that started in 2001 in response to a need for quality nursing education in the East African region. The school strives for excellence as its primary mission is to raise the standards and standing of the nursing profession. Nurses and Midwives – constitute 85% of the health workforce in East Africa. They are the frontline of health care services in East Africa, and in many areas, they represent the only qualified health professional available in a community.

Nurses are community educators,mentors, health advocates, and innovators who influence policy and health service reform. Midwives provide essential clinical and psychosocial care needed by women as they prepare for and give birth, performing a critical service in the prevention of unnecessary maternal and newborn deaths.

We believe that nurses and midwives should be accorded recognition and prestige due to the vital role they play in caring for the sick.We take pride in ensuring that our graduates are competent and equipped to positively impact the health outcomes of their patients.
