A medical startup company is now delivering preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to your front door on demand.
The company, Nurx, first began offering on demand, home-deliverable birth control in late 2015 and has just recently expanded its services to include providing Truvada (the drug name for PrEP) which has been proven by numerous studies to drastically reduce the risk of HIV transmission.
The company says that they don’t charge for their delivery service and that all you pay for is your insurance co-pay.
Anyone who’d like to give it a shot can create an account on the app and request one by filling out a health profile and answering questions to determine whether they’re eligible for the drug. They have to complete some lab tests for HIV status and renal function, but once that’s done, Nurx will deliver Truvada right to their doorstep.
The service is reportedly for both those who are already on a PrEP regimen and those looking to start one.
Nurx only offers on demand PrEP delivery in San Francisco at the moment but says they hope to expand within the next month.
