NOGAFEM-TRANSFORMING WOMEN'S HEALTH
Historically research bias and representation bias has excluded women from research due to cited reasons of hormonal effects pregnancy and safety to the unborn fetus, establishing the predominant male population as the baseline.
In 2019 the FDA released the Women’s Health by 2030 plan – pushing for the inclusion of more women in clinical trials because the premise of good medicine is good evidence and that means studying diseases, technologies and medications in women
How sex and gender bias has harmed the health of women
FIRST Do no Harm is the basic tenant of the practice of good clinical medicine. Nevertheless, we still hearing about lawsuits of 1 billion dollars being paid out to women whose technologies failed them- from orthopedic implant devices to vaginal meshes? Where have our regulatory processes fallen short? What about the algorithmic bias of AI tools, resulting in inaccurate predictors of health outcomes in women?
NOGAFem is a non govermantal organization (R.A) established to create a community of practice of researchers, entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, academic scholars and thought leaders who lead sex and gendered innovation, research, services and regulatory processes to fast track and overcome historical knowledge and practice gaps in order to facilitate healthcare equity for all genders.
