Mission of Noora Health
Noora Health's mission is to improve outcomes and save lives of at-risk patients by empowering family caregivers with the skills they need to care for their loved ones.
This project aims to reduce the incidence of preventable, newborn complications and deaths. Noora Health will train new mothers and family members in how to improve health outcomes through exclusive breastfeeding, skin-to-skin thermal care, hand hygiene, umbilical cord care, postpartum maternal diet, and health-seeking behaviors in response to warning signs among newborn care.
Why We Love This Project

Its’ Companion Care Program capitalizes on the untapped potential of extended family members to provide post discharge care that maximizes health outcomes. Noora Health’s model is sustainable, allows for the continuity of care, and enables institutions to build capacity over time and better serve their constituents.
