Equal Care

EQUAL CARE want to make gender-specific medicine the norm to enhance the outcome for millions of patients.

We are committed to advancing the healthcare system to expedite the benefits for patients.

The Why

The EQUAL CARE Gap

There is a healthcare gap between male and female, due to physiological and behavioral differences.

Fields of Medicine with High Impact of differences:

  • Neurology
  • Cardiology
  • Oncology
  • Orthopedics
  • Gastroenterology

80%

of the patients are likely to benefit from better prevention, a prompter diagnosis and more effective care through gender-specific medicine across all medical disciplines.

Differences have long been overlooked, under-researched and little understood.

Major medical differences between male and female patients:

  • Metabolism
  • Muscle-fat ratio
  • Cardiovascular system
  • Digestive system
  • Immune system
  • Hormones
  • Risk taking
  • Social roles

Despite scientific evidence in gender-specific medicine, many advancements do not reach the patient.

The How

We work towards a Healthcare System that lives Gender-Specific Medicine as the Norm.

The EQUAL CARE Gap

Physiologically and behavioral differences between women and men need to be integrated into medicine inter-disciplinarily.

More scientific consideration of gender-sensitive factors in medicine leads to patient benefits from prevention, prompt diagnosis and effective care.
Major gender-sensitive factors:

  • Metabolism
  • Muscle-fat ratio
  • Cardiovascular system
  • Digestive system
  • Immune system
  • Hormones
  • Risk taking
  • Social roles

The EQUAL CARE Barriers

Despite scientific evidence in gender-specific medicine, many advancements do not arrive at the patient.

We identified different barriers:

  • Lack of awareness of the potential for enhanced patient outcome
  • Limited transparency on gender-specific data of treatments
  • Missing official guidance for practitioners
  • Hesitant support by insurers and policies

It is our mission:

  • Create awareness to empower patients

How we serve

Provide Transparency on Diagnostics and Treatments as Medication, Digital and AI Applications

Understanding gender specific data and its implication in treatments is highly complex for patients and healthcare providers. To create transparency, we would like to certify and label diagnostics and treatments that use a gender specific approach in development and application to the patient. The Equal Care certification gives patients, doctors and other healthcare players a common language for communication and a common ground for collaboration.

EQUAL CARE Criteria for Medication

  1. Clinical Studies: Have the drugs been tested in men and women equally?
  2. Dosage: Are there relevant differences for men and women considered in the recommended dosage?
  3. Side Effects: Are there side effects specific to gender?
  4. Efficacy: What is the specific efficacy for men and women?
  5. Interactions: Are there gender-specific interactions with other medications or medical conditions?
