Ariadne Labs Community

Ariadne Labs focuses on the most critical moments in people’s lives: childbirth, surgery, and serious illness care. Our mission is to create scalable healthcare solutions that produce better care at the most critical moments in people’s lives, everywhere. These solutions or tools are simple, practical and designed to have global impact. Our vision is to ease suffering, optimize patient choice, and save lives, everywhere. Our programs and projects are at varying stages of development, from prototyping to wide-scale dissemination around the world. Currently, we have launched our Serious Illness Care and BetterBirth communities and we encourage you to join our community and our public forum.

Ariadne Labs is a joint center between Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard T. H Chan School of Public Health. Our parent institutions are both non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organizations and Ariadne Labs does not exist as a separate legal entity.
