About Noora Health (Bangladesh)

Noora Health’s mission is to improve health outcomes and save lives by empowering family caregivers with the skills they need to care for their loved ones, making them an integral part of healthcare delivery.
Noora Health 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. By turning these worried family members into skilled caregivers, we make family members an important pathway to healthcare delivery and reduce preventable patient complications. With the support of six state governments in India, the Government of Bangladesh, and large private hospital systems, we have trained over 1.7 million patients and family members across 327 health facilities. In a cohort of patients, our program reduced post-surgical cardiac complications by 71%, maternal complications by 12%, newborn complications by 16%, and newborn readmissions by 54% – 56% .
We were honored to have our work recently highlighted on Stanford Social Impact Review’s Uncharted Ground podcast on ‘The Healing Force of Family.’ Additionally, Noora Health was selected by the World Economic Forum (WEF) as one of India’s ‘Top 50 COVID-19 Last Mile Responders’ (2021), was a winner of WEF’s UpLink platform’s ‘COVID Social Justice Challenge’ (2020), was selected as a ‘Best Practice’ by India’s Ministry of Health at the National Summit on Innovations in Public Health (2019), and was featured in Fast Company’s list of top 50 Most Innovative Companies in the World (2016).

Noora Health has been supported by many large philanthropic foundations including Mulago, Draper Richards Kaplan, Echoing Green, and Jasmine Social Investments, among others.
