From 1 July 2015, people living with HIV have had the choice whether to collect their HIV medications from a hospital pharmacy, a local community pharmacy (chemist), or order from an online pharmacy and have them delivered. This change has removed a significant barrier for people with HIV and enables them to access treatment more conveniently.
 
In the lead-up to the roll-out of HIV community dispensing in September 2014, Positive Life surveyed over 500 people with HIV about using a community pharmacy to collect your HIV drugs and what concerns you might have.
 
In 2015, several months after the new arrangements were in place, Positive Life once again surveyed people with HIV to gather feedback on your experiences and to identify any problems and improve community dispensing access and efficiency.
