FEMTECH UNTAPPED – Redefining sexual healthcare and wellness

May 19 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

FemTech Untapped is an online program and a global movement tapping into areas of women’s health that have long been underserved, underresearched, and underfunded. In 2022, the program will be covering a wide range of topics with a goal to educate and destigmatize areas of FemTech that still remain “untapped”.

Join in every month for a series of events where the team will cover topics from diversity and inclusion in the femtech space, to menstrual health and sextech, to mental and cardiovascular health for women and underrepresented audiences and groups in the healthcare space.

About “Redefining sexual healthcare and wellness”

Sexual health is fundamental to the overall health and well-being of individuals, couples and families, and to the social and economic development of communities and countries, as stated by WHO.

It is a big business opportunity as well. According to Statista, the size of the sexual wellness market will be 37.2 billion U.S. dollars next year.

In 2022, however, sexual health and wellness are still stigmatized, covered in shame and taboo. Sexual health education, data gap related to female pleasure, and lack of research related to women’s health are some of the main reasons many sexual health and wellness startups exist and build their innovative products around.
