Arogya World follows a doorstep health model, which takes prevention to people where they live, learn and work. Our focus is scalable, science-based programs to reach a large population. These are deployed in schools, workplaces, and bringing information right to people’s phones. Our approach is gaining traction, and working! We have reached 5 million people so far, and our goal is to reach 22 million by 2022.

Type 2 Diabetes Isn't Inevitable. It's Preventable

Arogya World is a US-based global health non-profit organization working to prevent non-communicable diseases (NCDs), through health education and lifestyle change. Our mission is reflected in our very name – Arogya in Sanskrit means to live a life without disease.

NCD prevention is at the core of all our work. We work mostly in India, which is particularly hard hit by NCDs – diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancer and chronic lung diseases. We have shown proof of concept and are in aggressive scale-up mode. Our work is aligned with the Government of India’s priorities and we believe we can help India – and the world – meet the Sustainable Development Goals, especially Goal #3 (health and well-being for all.)

We do our science-based community-centered prevention work in close collaboration with our affiliate, Arogya World India Trust, a separate legal entity based in Bangalore, India.
