Adventist Health Centre Lilongwe (AHCL) is an institution of the Seventh Day Adventist Church under Malawi Union. It was founded in 1983 as a branch of Blantyre Adventist Hospital. At the time of commencement AHCL was only providing Dental and optical services. In 1988, medical services were added.
