Eileen Buttimer Erica Kantor

In this session, we will introduce you to the female health and wellness space, focusing on the repercussions of the historic female health gap, the emerging challenges, and the exciting opportunities for science and technology innovation.

Female health is complex and multifaceted, encompassing conditions that are unique to females, more common in females, and biologically different in females. The historic lack of funding and research in female health has resulted in a dearth of innovation specifically tailored for the female population. However, this tide is turning, marked by favourable investment, technology advancements, and ambitious femtech start-ups.

We will showcase examples of disruptive technologies, and discuss the importance of addressing female health at every life stage and across the care continuum. As markets shift towards value-based care, we believe that there is a significant opportunity for breakthrough female health solutions, requiring a data-driven, nuanced and holistic approach to product development.

  • The technology advancements enabling disruptive products and services
  • The role of the femtech market in catalysing investment in female technology
  • The emerging challenges faced by the female health and wellness market
  • The opportunity to improve patient outcomes through inclusive design and targeted innovation
