Putting women's health First
Empowering women with the information, support and tools they need to have better conversations with healthcare professionals.
The Women's Health Gap
Around the world, women suffer from what is known as the Women's Health Gap. This includes delays in diagnosis, issues in treatment, misinformation, discrimination, and a severe lack of research and investment into women's health issues. Women often live with chronic health issues because they are disempowered to address them. Women have also reported that their health issues are often misunderstood or minimised by doctors who might not have a personal understanding of women’s issues, a term that has been coined as medical gaslighting.
WE'RE HERE TO HELP
Kensa Health has been set up by two women to directly address these issues. We are building an interactive women's health platform to provide women with qualified medical information in the form of helpful and useful content. The creation of online communities will also help women connect over shared issues and questions, providing them with support and empowering them to get the care they need.
We are also in the process of building a personal health profile app that will help women manage, monitor, and maintain their own health data, empowering them to get the medical help they need.
