Individuals who commenced PEP overseas

Those who started PEP while overseas may have been prescribed antiretroviral drugs which are not recommended in Australia. Frequently, they may not have had all of the recommended baseline tests and STI/BBV evaluations recommended in Table 6. These should be completed as soon as possible and the individual should complete the PEP course using an Australian recommended PEP regimen. This can cause some anxiety to the patient and should be carefully explained and the individual reassured.
