Hello, We Are Miyara Women
Miyara Women is a women-led initiative, started with the intention of empowering and educating women about their health and healthcare needs while giving them access to the latest products and technologies in women's health, through a marketplace.
We want to build on the fact that women go to other women for advice about products and to discuss health information directly, via an online community or anonymously. To this end, we made it our mission to create a resource with information and a marketplace offering products and services related to women's health. This information will not only support other women but help build a sense of trust and community that we are keen to foster. Our aim is for women to have access to a marketplace for female health products where we as consumers can trust the products we buy because they are reviewed by us as a community.
The vision that drives our work is the desire to change the mindsets of people - both men and women - around women's health, so that it is seen and treated as an integral part of general health, rather than being considered ‘niche’. For this, we need more information, transparency and openness around conversations on women's health.
