WHO WE ARE

Noora Health’s mission is to improve outcomes and save lives of patients by empowering family caregivers with the skills they need to care for their loved ones.

Noora turns hospital hallways and waiting rooms into classrooms by tapping into the most compassionate resources available for the patient’s care - the patient’s own family - turning these worried family members into skilled caregivers. The Care Companion Program (CCP) is currently implemented at more than 150 government hospitals across India and Bangladesh and over 1,000,000 patients and family members have been trained by the CCP. Research on the program has found improved health behavior uptake, decrease in post-surgical complication rates, and decrease in newborn complications/readmissions. Noora’s COVID-19 response has reached more than 15 million people.

Noora Health was launched out of Stanford University in 2014, and has been supported by many large philanthropic foundations including Mulago, Draper Richards Kaplan, Echoing Green, Ashoka, Medtronic and Jasmine among others. For more information:
