Honorable Deputy Prime Minister, Honorable Minister, Cher Ambassador,

It is such a pleasure to be here today.

On behalf of the Aga Khan Health Services and Aga Khan University, it's not often that we get to inaugurate this kind of investment.

I think that Dr. Heiss and my colleagues would all tell you that the overall AKDN health system, whether it's this year, I believe we'll see about 12 million patients around the world, inpatient and outpatient.

We work in about a dozen countries, including Afghanistan, including Pakistan.

Forty years ago, the Aga Khan University received its Charter from the Government of Pakistan as a vast crowd of well-wishers looked on. It was a truly historic occasion – the kind that comes only a few times in one's life. It filled my heart and the hearts of many others with joy and pride.

I would like to congratulate the Nation Media Group on holding this fourth edition of the global award-winning Kusi Ideas Festival.

Since it was founded by His Highness the Aga Khan in 1959, during the struggle for independence and Pan-Africanism, the Group’s path has been closely entwined with the history of Kenya, of East Africa and of the African continent.

At the Aga Khan University, Pakistan

December 2022

First and foremost, I want to applaud everyone who participated in the President’s challenge for climate solutions.

Climate change is a subject that we hear about constantly. It is on the front page of newspapers. It is the subject of films, television shows and books. It is discussed by world leaders at high-profile events and by millions of people on social media. Yet the volume of attention still exceeds the appetite for action.

Despite all the hype, the UN-sponsored world summit on sustainable development in South Africa in August could not introduce any real constraints because they would have meant re-examining globalisation. So could sustainable development just be a pretext for maintaining a growth that must be, by nature, destructive to the environment?
