Dar es Salaam — Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa has directed the Dodoma City Council executive director to allocate land specifically for the Aga Khan Development Networks (AKDN) to invest in a bid to, among other things, help the country achieve universal health coverage.

The Premier issued the directive yesterday during the inauguration of the Sh192-billion worth expanded (Phase II) Aga Khan Hospital building in Dar es Salaam, insisting that the government wanted to keep on working closely with the Network to enhance improvement in various key sectors.

"We ask you (AKDN) to expand your network to our Dodoma capital by building a highly advanced hospital, like you have done here, and help us achieve a universal health coverage for our people," he said.

He disclosed the directions he had given to Dodoma City's executive director Godwin Kunambi to allocate a place for AKDN to expand its health services.
