Bold Idea 

Improve health outcomes and save lives of at-risk patients by training families to provide high-quality, low-risk care in the hospital and at home.


Noora Health’s mission is to improve health outcomes for the disenfranchised. They deliver health skills training to at-risk patient families – certifying them in everything from hygiene to recognition of early-warning signs. Noora Health meets users where they are by turning hospital hallways, waiting rooms and wards into classrooms. By certifying families in the conditions they face, Noora gives them the ability to heal and prevent disease when they return home. Their goal is to create a more resilient health system by building capacity at the household level, placing care in the hands of those who need it most.


Edith Elliott is the co-founder and CEO of Noora Health, a nonprofit that unleashes the potential of patients and their family members by training them with skills to tremendously improve clinical outcomes, provide care and save lives. Edith believes that everyone, everywhere deserves the access, agency and human dignity associated with access to high quality healthcare. With a background in global health research, program implementation, design thinking and a passion for meeting users where they are, Edith recognizes that the best solutions are often the most simple and overlooked ones. Prior to Noora Health, Edith worked first at The Aspen Institute and then at Population Services International focusing on contractible disease prevention efforts. She has her BA in International Relations from Tufts University, her MA in International Policy and Global Health from Stanford and was recently selected as a Rainer Arnhold Fellow with the Mulago Foundation.
