Ova

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects up to 20% of women in the United Kingdom, yet most women either get diagnosed later than they should, or get misdiagnosed because of the fluctuating nature of the condition’s symptoms.

Ova is a four-part initiative that has been designed to address key stakeholders within the public health sector, young women, and communities of PCOS patients to begin systematically screening for symptoms earlier in a playful, accessible, and non-invasive way. By incentivising young women to learn more about PCOS, accurate diagnosis becomes more likely and agency is transferred from medical specialists to broader sectors of the population.
