Our story

Loretta was founded on the belief that maintaining good health requires a foundation of trust, transparency, and access to rights-affirming care and support.

We will support the LGBTQI+ community and healthcare professionals by providing person-specific data-driven insights, tools, and services to prevent and detect illness earlier and help health providers deliver a more inclusive and personalized healthcare experience for LGBTQ+ individuals.

Our multipurpose platform is evidence and co-developed with the full diversity of the LGBTQ+ community to ensure unlocking a deeper understanding of LGBTQ+ health and driving powerful practices and discoveries across healthcare.

Why

LGBTQI+ people face glaring health disparities in comparison to the general population. Healthcare systems need to fundamentally change to keep up with the digital transformation and unleash the potential it has to fundamentally change medical care. Despite the upcoming challenges, easy access to medical treatments and medications must be ensured. Due to this development, preventive services and personalized health offerings for well-being are becoming increasingly important.

Stigma and discrimination

The LGBTQI+ community often faces significant stigma and discrimination when they seek medical care, which can have a profound impact on their overall health and well-being. Many encounter prejudice from healthcare providers, ranging from overt hostility to subtle biases, resulting in inadequate or inappropriate treatment. This discrimination can discourage them from seeking essential medical help, leading to delayed diagnoses and treatments.

Lack of inclusiveness

Fear of a lack of confidentiality

LGBTQI+ individuals often face a significant fear of confidentiality breaches during medical treatments, which can hinder their willingness to seek care. This fear stems from concerns that their sexual orientation or gender identity might be disclosed without their consent, potentially leading to social stigma, discrimination, or even personal harm. In many cases, this anxiety is exacerbated by past negative experiences or a general mistrust of the healthcare system's ability to maintain privacy. As a result, LGBTQI+ patients may withhold critical information from healthcare providers, which can compromise the quality and effectiveness of their treatment.

Improving understanding of LGBTQI+ health

Many medical professionals lack awareness of LGBTQI+ health, which can result in inadequate treatment for these individuals. Specifically, healthcare providers often lack the necessary training and knowledge to address the unique health concerns of the LGBTQI+ community, including mental health challenges, higher rates of certain illnesses, and specific needs related to gender-affirming care.
