ASHM SHPA Webinar – Dispensing HIV Medications
Australia has transitioned from an industry-sponsored antiretroviral treatment (ART) compassionate access scheme to a Federation Funding Agreement (FFA) model that provides free or affordable access to ART for people living with HIV who do not have Medicare.
People living with HIV without Medicare are able to access their HIV treatment free of charge or at low cost through government-funded hospital pharmacies.
