This startup delivers HIV-prevention pills to your doorstep via an app
Californians can now get prescriptions for a daily HIV-prevention pill through an app, with the medicine delivered to their door in a matter of days. The San Francisco-based startup Nurx, which started by offering birth control in 2014, announced at the end of March that they would begin offering Truvada as "PrEP," or an HIV preexposure prophylaxis.
You Don't Have to Visit a Doctor to Get PrEP, Thanks to Nurx
Stigma. Embarrassment. Ignorant health care providers. A lack of insurance coverage. There are many reasons some folks can't access the HIV prevention pill Truvada as PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis). The California-based startup Nurx is offering a solution: Bypass the doctors altogether and have the meds delivered to your home.
A Silicon Valley pharmacy delivery startup just became the first to offer an at-home lab test for a popular HIV-preventing medication
Nurx, a Silicon Valley prescription drug delivery startup that once solely dispensed birth control, is launching a new service that allows patients who want HIV-prevention drug Truvada to do the required testing at home. It's a big move for the company, which recently raised $36 million and added Chelsea Clinton to its board of advisers.
Would you recommend this product?
Love your site's design, menu + colors. personal feedback is to have your product hunt tagline "easy and affordable HIV home testing kit" front and center on your landing page - if I wasn't coming from product hunt it would take me awhile to understand what it is :)
I'm so glad you like it :) and thank you for the feedback! I'll definitely pass that along.
No problem. By the way seeing as you just launched I have a market research service where for $12 you can ask 100 people a question then follow-up based on how they answered and even interview them!
You could ask e.g. "How much would you pay for an easy and affordable HIV home test kit?" Anyway If you want to give it a shot feel free to sign up and let me know which email you used over Intercom and I'll pass you $12 in free credits. Best of luck otherwise!
