Twentyeight Health Expands Telehealth Services to Include Herpes Treatment

Company building out comprehensive telemedicine platform for sexual and reproductive care focused on reaching women from underserved communities

NEW YORK, July 21, 2022 — Twentyeight Health, a telehealth company providing affordable access and convenience for reproductive and sexual health, today announced that it will begin offering treatment for herpes. 

“Since launching in 2018, women across the U.S. have relied on Twentyeight Health for birth control prescriptions and delivery. In the coming years, Twentyeight Health will be a bigger part of women’s sexual and reproductive care journies, providing telehealth resources and prescription delivery for a range of needs — from addressing STIs, to pre and post natal services.”

Added Bruno Van Tuykom, co-founder of Twentyeight Health, “Millions of people in the U.S. are living with genital herpes, and receiving care can be expensive or inconvenient. With today’s announcement, our hope is to significantly increase access to herpes treatment.” 

During a telehealth consultation for herpes treatment, Twentyeight Health doctors can support patients with existing herpes diagnoses and prescribe treatments to prevent or address outbreaks, which Twentyeight Health can deliver discreetly to the patients’ door. When a patient logs on to the Twentyeight Health platform, they will experience:

  • A platform designed to be inclusive of underserved communities: Twentyeight Health leverages multiple modes of telehealth, including audio consultations and direct messaging with physicians, to provide privacy, discretion and a seamless experience regardless of the individual’s access to high-speed internet or housing situation.
  • Accessible ongoing care: Twentyeight Health provides ongoing care at no extra cost through unlimited doctor follow up messages to discuss issues such as updating prescriptions or addressing potential side effects.
  • Culturally competent physicians: A 2021 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine details that the people who use telehealth in the greatest numbers are affluent Americans living in urban areas. In order to ensure that everyone feels comfortable using Twentyeight Health’s telehealth services, the company works with physicians who have experience providing care to low-income patients and in communities of color.

In addition to herpes treatment, Twentyeight Health customers can access a range of birth control options (pill, patch, ring, shot, emergency contraception, internal condoms), prenatal vitamins, and COVID-19 tests. Twentyeight Health is currently available in more than 30 states, reaching more than 85% of women of reproductive age.
