Breaking the taboos around sexual health and pleasure is crucial to creating a world where everyone can enjoy healthy and fulfilling relationships. By educating and informing people about sexual health through credible sources, we can help to dispel myths and misconceptions that have long been barriers to healthy sexual expression. By encouraging open and honest communication about sexual health, we can create a more inclusive and accepting society that values everyone's right to pleasure and fulfilment. The third edition of Healthcare Heroes: Health-Tech & Well-being Conclave & Awards, presented by Dabur Vedic Herbal Tea and co-presented by Instashied and Piramal Finance, brings such individuals and organisations that are shaping the way we perceive sexual wellness.
