Meet Praava

We are building a healthcare


Our Mission

Praava exists to provide a better patient experience. We are a one-stop-shop for your health, offering caring doctors, world-class diagnostics and much more.

We believe that everyone should have access to convenient, affordable, and high-quality care. 

We are on a mission to change how healthcare is delivered in Bangladesh. We know how daunting getting access to the right care can be which is why we focus on turning a doctor visit into a delightful experience.

Our goal is to make the process intuitive for our patients and provide care where ever you are – in clinic or at-home.

What sets us apart

Imaging and laboratory services


We have imaging and laboratory services. To ensure the quality of tests, our lab participates in the world’s largest external quality assessment scheme. Our average accuracy score is 99.9% and rated one of the best in Bangladesh.



We provide best-in-class care at a price you can afford. We work hard to reduce our cost, so more Bangladeshis can have access to great care.



Praava uses technology to create a seamless patient experience. We delivered many ‘firsts’ including the first patient app and COVID-19 symptom checker in Bangladesh.
