About Us

LET’S TAKE CONTROL OF OUR OWN HEALTH

Everyone is saying that healthcare is broken. We're here to fix it.

We believe healthcare should be unconditional. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you get up to in your own time. You deserve to be treated quickly and with compassion. That’s why we’re pioneering a new type of healthcare that’s easier and smarter, one in which vital medications and tests are accessible and affordable to everyone. No ifs, no buts.

Life can be complicated.
Taking care of yourself shouldn't be.

Nurx is built to deliver on the three things everyone needs from their healthcare. Choice, so you can make positive decisions about your own body. Control, so you can plan ahead and look after yourself without complication. And freedom, so your access to medication is never blocked by cost, bureaucracy, geography, stigma, or anything else.

Who we are

Founded by Hans Gangeskar and Dr. Edvard Engesæth, the Nurx team is comprised of world class physicians, business leaders, and industry experts.

Together we're working to make healthcare more accessible and simpler for everyone.

WE’RE ON A MISSION TO TRANSFORM HEALTHCARE

We’re reimagining the future of healthcare for patients and medical providers. Join us as we revolutionize primary care – starting with sexual health.
