Are you still paying for your HIV medications?

A co-payment waiver was introduced on 3 October 2023 for HIV antiretroviral therapy dispensed in Queensland pharmacies for all people with HIV who are residents of Queensland. This means HIV treatment is free for everyone in Queensland.

We have heard from some of our community that they aren’t receiving this co-payment waiver.

If you are still being asked to pay any co-payment when collecting your prescription, no matter how small, we want to hear from you! We want to ensure everyone can benefit from this initiative. Contact us at with relevant details.

Please note: This co-payment waiver only applies to HIV antiretroviral therapies, not for other prescription medications you may take.
