Q and A


Meds in South Africa without a prescription, is it possible?

I live in South Africa. Can I get ARVs without a prescription?


Thanks for getting in touch.

Though its possible to get ARVs in South Africa from a pharmacy, you’ll still need a prescription from your doctor.

    Hi Eric,

    If you’re living in South Africa you can contact the Treatment Action Campaign. They might be able to help with local advice. And as Lisa says, you’ll need a prescription from your doctor.

    I’m having a problem obtaining ARVS, so, I want a place where I can buy it.
