Addressing barriers for women’s health through at-home care and diagnostic solutions


Scientific research, clinical trials, and treatments are created and tested with the male anatomy at the core. Facing outdated healthcare systems that follow these principles risks the lives of millions of women, because medical solutions still answer to male-centric health ecosystems. 

Responses to medication and treatments, but also symptoms, are different in men and women. However, healthcare models are crafted mainly based on research conducted on male anatomy. If a woman and a man suffer from the same condition, it can take up to 4 years longer for the woman to be diagnosed.

It doesn’t end with diagnostics and treatments. Because white males are still the population segment where medical research and testing is focused, the known information is tailored for this portion of the global population. Innovations receiving funding are the ones with bigger research supporting them, leaving women and non-white segments of the population without a proper healthcare system to care for them.
