Digital health startup for women Uvi Health has raised $330,000 (Rs 2.47 crore) in a pre-seed round of funding led by Titan Capital and other marquee groups of investors, the company said in a statement.
Founded by Mehak Malik, an alumnus of Harvard, Uvi Health aims to simplify the healthcare regime for women living with chronic, sexual, and reproductive health disorders. The company aims to ensure its users get an end-to-end experience by bringing everything from diagnosis, specialist consultations, and lifestyle modifications under one roof.
“Women form the backbone of any household and yet the only time their health is taken seriously in the family is when they are bearing a child. Outside of childbirth, every woman would face at least one reproductive health event in her life, which can manifest in the form of PCOS, endometriosis, sexual or pelvic health dysfunctions. The stigma associated with seeking care for these events is too high, and there are no affordable options that women can access discreetly without judgment. At Uvi Health, it’s our mission to help women live a fulfilling life despite these disorders,” said Malik, chief executive officer of Uvi Health.
Uvi Health is aiming to bring more accountability and care in providing women with a holistic healthcare experience. Currently, over 4,000 women are part of Uvi Health’s online community on Instagram and Facebook handles.
