In the digital age dominated by social media, it is vital to engage in open, honest conversations about topics like sex, masturbation, sexual pleasure, and overall well-being that women face. Viya Health ZA aspires to be at the forefront of this change, providing women with access to accurate information and creating a safe space where they can freely explore and enhance their overall health.

About Viya Health:

Established in late 2021, Viya Health emerged as a response to the challenges encountered in the sexual reproductive health space. With over 50 years of experience offering sexual health and reproductive products, PSI (Population Services International) recognized the urgent need for reliable and accurate information and support to curb stigmas and myths surrounding sexual reproductive health and wellness.

Viya tackles topics such as:

Family Planning: Educating women about various sexual protection methods, such as condoms, intrauterine devices (IUDs), contraceptive shots and pills, and fertility tracking, enabling them to make informed decisions.

Pleasure: Rooted in the belief that a positive sexual experience involves maximum enjoyment while minimizing potential health risks. Through proper preparation and education, we empower women to prioritize their pleasure without compromising their well-being.

Self-Care & Love: Topics that are often considered difficult to discuss, such as vaginal care and sexual illnesses or dysfunctions. By providing a safe and confidential environment, we aim to eliminate the shame and encourage open dialogue.

Menstrual Health: The platform openly discusses menstrual health from the initial phase to menopause. We emphasize the impact of menstruation on physical, psychological, and social well-being, encouraging women to embrace their menstrual cycles.

Viya’s mission is to promote women's overall health as well as sexual & reproductive health and well-being while inviting ladies to join in on conversations with like-minded women who are seeking reliable information and support.
