Join the ETH Zurich Summit to discuss, discover and ideate about: the link between gender and effective therapy in medicine, bridging the missing data gap, innovative screening and symptom monitoring, personalizing contraception and fertility, the future of pain and symptom management in gynecology.

Why do we need FemTech?

Because throughout history women have been considered aberrations from the norm, rather than a crucial and vital part of the population to be considered in medical trials and long-term studies.

Women of reproductive age were often excluded out of the fear that menstrual cycles and changes in hormones could pose unnecessary complications and act as unpredictable variables.

This has resulted in missing data sets and a lack of understanding, diagnosis and treatment of many gynecological conditions that impact large swaths of the female population, as well as unwanted pharmaceutical side effects for non-gynecological diseases, delays in care, underdiagnoses or undertreatment.

However – be it by wearables, mobile apps, home testing devices or kits – this is beginning to change, with the emergence of companies beginning to collect large amounts of new data, conduct subsequent research studies and develop new means of treatment.
