About Us

Noora Health is a non-profit social venture born out of Stanford University that empowers families of patients with high-impact medical skills making them an important part of healthcare delivery. 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.

Over the past 5 years, Noora's programs have received enthusiastic support in India from the state governments of Karnataka, Punjab, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and from large private healthcare chains such as Narayana Health and Manipal. In collaboration with local partners and organizations Noora has trained over 300K families across 100+ hospitals in India with rigorous evaluations showing significant impact on patient outcomes.

Noora Health was in Fast Company's list of top 50 Most Innovative Companies in the World of 2016 (and made the top 10 list for India in 2016 and 2017), and has been supported by Forbes, Ashoka, World Health Organization, TED-Med, and many large philanthropic foundations including Mulago, Draper Richards Kaplan, Echoing Green, Jasmine among others.
