“Uber for birth control” expands to HIV-prevention meds

Chrissy Farr reports:

Nurx, the app maker that made a splash by delivering birth control to your door in 24 hours (think “Uber for birth control”), has now expanded its service to include HIV-prevention meds. The Y Combinator-funded company will also deliver Truvada, a daily pill for people to protect themselves against HIV-1 infection. According to the CDC, more than 43,000 people in the United States were newly diagnosed with HIV in 2014.

* Truvada is about 90% effective in reducing HIV infection from sex.AM
