Our team is a tech-savvy, globally collaborative one, defined by a partnership between U.S.-based staff and a global network of volunteers (our “global team”) that together act to support our Nepal-based team in delivering transparent, data-driven health care.
Our global team is lean in cost, but not in commitment. Outside of our full- time Executive Director, Nyaya Health’s global team volunteered a total of 15,110 hours in 2011 through consistent and clear support to drive our funding, communications, partnerships, administration, and data programs.
Global Team Snapshot:

Mark Arnoldy, Executive Director
After nearly dying on his first trip to Nepal from a lack of access to health care following a severe allergic reaction, Mark was afforded a rare glimpse of empathy with the millions of Nepalis denied care in their own country. That served as a critical incident for him, and led him to commit to a life of building health systems alongside Nepal’s poorest through Nyaya Health. Prior to Nyaya Health, Mark founded NepalNUTrition to treat malnourished children and advised the creation of two blended value businesses in the United States — Nut-rients and 5 Pound Apparel – that fund nutrition programs in Nepal. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Colorado at Boulder, attended Harvard’s Global Health Effectiveness Program, and is a former Fulbright Scholar to Nepal. Mark is a Cordes Fellow, Bluhm/Helfand Social Innovation Fellow, and has been published in the Global Post, Change.org, the Nepali Times, and Kathmandu Post.
Tina Chang, Creative Director
The role of Creative Director at Nyaya Health comes as the perfect merging of two loves for Tina; art and social justice. Having studied architecture at the University of California at Berkeley as an undergraduate, and taking many personal trips to developing countries, she has always looked for opportunities to serve communities both locally and around the world. After a year in the architecture graduate program at the Rhode Island School of Design, Tina left the program to pursue a career in the art field. She eventually returned to school for her AAS in Graphic Design at Parsons The New School for Design. Her aim is to direct her love for storytelling, people and art to make a tangible impact in people’s lives.
