Closing the Gender Data Gap

Women's health has always been under prioritized in science.

Exercise your right to participate in research.

Female biology has not been studied equally since the beginning of medical research.  The data used to guide clinical diagnosis today is biased to male biology.  So, when women are not included in research, medical diagnosis may not be accurate for women.

You have the right to participate in research and be represented.

CLOSING THE GENDER DATA GAP

Women’s health has always been under prioritized in science.

We want to change this.

Female biology has not been studied equally since the beginning of medical research. The data used to guide clinical diagnosis today is biased to male biology. You have the choice to be represented in medical research to revolutionize women's health.

about us

A team of scientific rebels

We are a group of people who believe something that 1.8 billion women do at any given month should not go unanswered.

In 2014, Qvin™ was founded to research and develop a product that powers an underserved and understudied population — women.

We have been challenging the status quo on period blood as a health, not hygiene product.

Qvin [pronounced kwɪn] is derived from the word woman in Denmark. We stand for every person who identifies with women, however they define it.
