HIV treatment as an expat in countries without HIV restrictions

Mar 31, 2013

Dear Mr. Young,

If one is an HIV positive expatriate living in a country that is WITHOUT HIV restrictions, will that country's specialists prescribe one HIV medication?

Your sincerely,


Response from Dr. Young

Hello Anon,

Much depends on the country that you're asking about. Some countries yes, others no.

I'd suggest talking to an in-country AIDS Service Organization for details. One possible staring point would be the excellent organization GNP Plus.
