Women's health has long been neglected and underfunded, leading to significant unmet needs, lack of investment and innovation, and a disparity in access to care for female-specific health issues. One area where this is particularly pronounced is in the field of reproductive health, where there is significant stigma and miscommunication around menstrual health, infertility, pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause. As a result, many women face difficulties in accessing quality care for these conditions.

Femtech refers to a wide range of technologies and products that aim to address women's health issues, including menstrual health, reproductive health, sexual health, maternal health, and menopause. It includes mobile health (mHealth), telemedicine platforms, wearable devices, diagnostic tools, and even drugs for treating conditions that disproportionately impact women.

COVID-19 accelerated the adoption of digital health and increased demand for apps, telemedicine, digital therapeutics (DTx), and wearables that cater specifically to women's health. These not only allowed women to continue to receive care during lockdown, but also provided new avenues of care to those unable to access traditional services prior to the pandemic for various reasons such as stigma or cultural restrictions. While the Femtech industry is still relatively young, there is a growing awareness and recognition of the need for innovation to improve unmet needs in women's health. The market faces several challenges, such as limited access to funding and a lack of investment from traditional healthcare companies. However, as it continues to mature and more investment and funding is directed towards this area, it is hoped that women will have greater access to care in the future
