The pandemic and healthcare crises resulted in digital health taking centre stage. A positive consequence of this was the rise of female technology and more debate and discussion around gender-specific health. So far, women’s health has usually been relegated to being within the folds of reproductive health. From stroke and diabetes to prosthetic implants and mental health issues, women have long been suffering from receiving care and treatment that has been designed “for men, by men, and on men.” In the era of precision health, we need to acknowledge that it is time for women to receive gender-specific treatment and care.

While the FemTech market is still in a nascent stage, it has witnessed considerable innovations in the recent past, with the emergence of newer digital solutions across all segments ranging from fertility monitoring to cancer diagnosis solutions. The increasing focus on providing holistic personalized care for women of all ages beyond fertility and pregnancy care, menopause unveils itself as the next big opportunity in the global FemTech landscape. Come and join us in unveiling the huge growth opportunities in FemTech that would eventually improve the life of the “world’s better-half.”
