Women’s healthcare has long been shrouded in stigma and shame, making it difficult for women to discuss their health issues openly. However, Aline Berabose, a young entrepreneur, is revolutionizing the industry with her digital healthcare platform, LUNA.

Thanks to the efforts of young entrepreneurs like Aline Berabose, women’s healthcare is undergoing a digital revolution. Berabose is the CEO and Co-founder of LUNA, a women’s health tech startup that is changing the game.

LUNA launched last year. It is a women’s health tech startup that provides a range of services designed to help women take control of their health. The platform offers a variety of digital tools and chat rooms for topics such as menstrual cycles, monitoring fertility, and managing sexual health.

LUNA also provides access to a network of licensed healthcare professionals who can offer advice and support on a range of health issues.

What sets LUNA apart from other digital healthcare platforms is its focus on creating a safe and supportive environment for women. Women can discuss all topics anonymously.

Aline Berabose understands that many women feel uncomfortable discussing their health issues openly, which is why LUNA is designed to be a safe space where women can share their concerns without fear of judgment or shame.

She said, “I find it extremely difficult for girls to visit hospitals, particularly for reproductive health services. If she has an infection or has any other questions, she does not feel very comfortable talking about it because they are timid, and also the social norms do not really address such topics.”

Many of us I believe had that awkward visit to the doctor. You have to ask uncomfortable questions not because they aren’t reasonable or anything but just because of the looks and stares you get it makes everything really awkward.

Through LUNA, Aline Berabose is changing the conversation around women’s healthcare. She is helping to break down the barriers that have traditionally made it difficult for women to seek out the care and support they need.

By providing a range of digital tools and resources, LUNA is empowering women to take control of their health and make informed decisions about their bodies.

She said, “We have what is known as chat rooms in our community. If a mother who has recently given birth wants to learn how to breastfeed, she can go to a specific room,” she said adding, “The good thing about Luna is that it is diverse, with women from various communities outside of Rwanda.”

These chat rooms range from reproductive health to menstrual health and other topics. They also provide members with the opportunity to speak with expert doctors who are licensed.

These women can meet with pregnancy specialists, contraception specialists, and sexual health specialists are among them. They can communicate via chat, phone call, or even video call if necessary for testing. If this isn’t a revolution I do not know what is.

The professional experts on the platform have gone through a process to equip them with the right strategies and approaches on how to provide the best service at LUNA.

Berabose says the platform comes in handy since members do not have to travel long distances to meet with the doctor; instead, it can be done online through our platform.

In addition to providing digital healthcare services, LUNA is also working to raise awareness about women’s health issues. The platform is committed to educating women about their bodies and providing them with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their health.

By doing so, LUNA is helping to create a more informed and empowered generation of women.

Aline Berabose’s work with LUNA is a testament to the power of entrepreneurship to drive social change. By leveraging technology and innovation, she is creating a new model for women’s healthcare that is more accessible, supportive, and empowering.

She says, “We launched Luna in the hopes of becoming self-sustaining of course, but more importantly, we created this to assist women and girls to express their concerns and assist them in receiving the best services with safety and privacy.”

Her vision for LUNA is to create a world where women are no longer stigmatized or shamed for seeking out the care and support they need.
