Explaining How To Import PrEP

When I talk to patients about how to import the drug, I personally take them to the PrEP Access Now website, http://pan.org.au. I walk them through the process. Key points that I want to remind them about is that they should never import more than 90 tablets at a time. I also want to reinforce to them that as part of the process of ordering online, they will need to take a photo of their prescription and upload it to the website so they can legally import the drug into Australia. I also remind them to keep their script. Should customs ask them any particular questions when the drug is coming into Australia, they’ll have their script and they’ll be able to say, “This was prescribed by my doctor. I’m importing this legally.”
