31 Jan HISTORY
Alhasan Ibrahim Dawanau College of Health Sciences and Technology, Kano was established in the year 2015 as the pioneer private health training institution in the history of Kano state. The college began operations in October 2015 after securing approval from the State Ministry of Health to kick start academic activities. The college being the pioneer suffered the pains of pioneering as there were no documents or personalities that had made similar efforts in the past.
The mission of the college is to support the government in addressing the challenges of education and health not only through training and empowerment, but also by inculcating into students an entrepreneurial skill, to be employers of labor upon graduation by themselves. Among the cardinal objectives of the college is to train highly disciplined and selfless manpower for our struggling health sector and build in them the spirit of selfless service to humanity, morality, God consciousness and community solidarity. The college in addition to this, will create jobs, serving as a means of livelihood for its employees, thereby reducing that burden on government.
The college was named after Malam Alhasan Ibrahim Dawanau, a community leader and Islamic preacher who spent the whole of his life serving humanity through teaching, guidance and counseling, arbitration and reconciliation of individuals and groups.
The college, then located at Dorayi Babba along Gwarzo Road, began with affiliation from Muslim Community College of Health Technology, Funtua with a total number of 72 students distributed in the four (4) professional courses available then, viz; Health Information Technician (HIT), Health Education and Promotion (HEP), Environmental Health Technician (EVT) and Environmental Health Assistant (EHA). Lectures began on Monday the 4th day of January, 2016. The college later moved to its present site located at No. 25 General Bashir Magashi Street (formerly UDB road), Hotoro GRA Kano on Friday the 15th day of April, 2016.
The college currently has over 300 students from different cultural backgrounds and states of the federation.
