The Aswan Heart Centre Project (AHC) is an exceptional project launched in 2009 to establish a centre of excellence to combat heart disease in Egypt. Based in the heart of the Egyptian city of Aswan, The AHC occupies an area of 9000 m2 adjacent to the Aswan General Teaching Hospital.A project of great significance to the Egyptian People, it places emphasis on making available state-of-the-art facilities, resources, research and scientific methods to provide heart patients – especially the underprivileged – with the highest standards of care available today. Our focus is on Upper Egypt and its surrounding areas, and extends to reach anyone in need.
The AHC is an integral part of the Magi Yacoub Foundation (MYF), one of Egypt's most renowned charity organizations in Egypt. The MYF is the body responsible for strategic management and administration of the AHC. Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub is the Chairman of the Executive Board that is in charge of the Centre's day-to-day operations and oversight, with other Members appointed by the Magdi Yacoub Foundation's Board of Trustees.
Backed up by the invaluable expertise of the MYF and strong financial support, effective management, existing local talent nurtured by appropriate academic leadership, career development plans and extensive international connections and good will, we are confident in our drive and ability to reach our set goals and defined objectives.
