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 and workplaces and bring information right to people’s phones. Our approach is gaining traction and working! We have reached 12.5 million through 2023, and we aim to reach 50 million in the next 3 to 5 years.

We are proud recipients of the 2022 UN Interagency Task Force & the W.H.O. Special Programme on Primary Health Care Award

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 are proud to have reached more than 1 million people who live at the bottom of the pyramid with earnings of <$5.50 a day.

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.
