Freddie’s mission is an ambitious one: halving the transmissions of new HIV infections in Canada. HIV is on the rise in Canada, and over 50% of new HIV cases are in the LGBTQ2S+ community. Freddie is a health tech start-up that connects patients with physicians free of charge, through telemedicine. Freddie has built a direct-to-consumer telemedicine offering to enable this community to access HIV prevention medication that reduces the risk of acquiring HIV by 99%, just virtually. This medication is called Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, or PrEP. Freddie was launched and is operated by PurposeMed Inc., a Calgary-based virtual care company.
