Walgreens, Uber and DoorDash team up to deliver HIV medication

Walgreens has collaborated with DoorDash and Uber to offer Same-Day Rx Delivery, a service that will give free same-day delivery of HIV treatment and prevention drugs. Patients must live within 15 miles of a participating Walgreens retail pharmacy to be eligible. The service aims to further a recent White House commitment to revamp the national HIV/AIDS strategy and re-energize the national HIV response. In response to a White House call to action, the three groups collaborated in December 2022 to begin a free Paxlovid delivery service, increasing access to COVID-19 therapy for patients who are socially vulnerable and/or live in medically underserved locations. The programme will assist in lowering transportation and access obstacles so that those in most need can have their prescriptions delivered straight to their homes at no cost.
