Non profit

Arogya World is a U.S. based non-profit organization committed to changing the course of chronic disease, one community at a time. The name of the organization is simply an articulation of their mission: Arogya in Sanskrit means good health.  More literally it means to live a life without disease.

Fragility, pluripathology/polipathology and/or complex chronic diseases

Arogya World’s approach is to leverage strong science, medical and non- medical experts, public-private partnerships and modern technology to make measurable public health impact.

NCDs which include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancers and chronic lung disease, are among the 21st century’s greatest health and development challenges. It is time to rewrite the story of NCDs around the world.  We know that this will be a multi-year journey and that it will take patience and tenacity.
