WHY WE EXIST

We're here to help women shift away
from dismissing their recurring symptoms.

After speaking with hundreds of women, and medical stakeholders to understand the barriers that exist today in hormonal care, we created Mohana. An end-to-end precision health platform, built on a new care model.
OUR CARE MODEL

The foundations of the future
we're creating

Patient advocacy

Our advanced testing and health insights empower women to have informed discussions with their healthcare providers, while also elevating their active role in steering their well-being.

Patient-driven care

We're making it effortless for our users to be proactive about their health. Our model emphasizes prevention and provides guidance on how to take action towards optimal health.

Health equity

We believe in technology's power in closing the gap in women's health research, at scale. We take this as our responsibility, and are excited to partner with academic institutions to fuel new research.

OUR STORY

Why we started Mohana

Sometimes hard things can transform into the seeds of something new and beautiful. The story behind Mohana is no different. Three years ago, our founder, Dora, found out that her mother had ovarian cancer. Her health journey alone with PCOS was nothing compared to seeing a loved one go through this experience. Many of us learn to master the art of treating our symptoms as normal, just because "others have this too". But when you witness first-hand what untreated symptoms can escalate to, it is hard to accept that.

While we could speak volumes about the pain that led us to create Mohana, the real takeaway perhaps lies here: Every woman should have a chance to turn their health around when it is still early, not treat symptoms as normal, and feel empowered to make their symptoms heard.

OUR TEAM

Meet the people behind Mohana

We are an interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers, united over a shared passion for using science and technology to create better health outcomes for women. We're fortunate to be joined by a team of medical advisors from endocrinology, gynecology, and nutrition science, to realize our vision for a precision platform that empowers women to be the champions of their own health.
