An information sheet on the Viral Hepatitis Nurses who provide a statewide community service.
General practitioners and community-based medical practitioners may apply for authority to prescribe section 100 (S100) highly specialised drugs (HSD) for the treatment of people with HIV and/or hepatitis B (HBV) in a community setting.
On behalf of SA Health, the Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM) administers the S100 HSD accreditation process in South Australia. Please follow the links below to the ASHM website for more information about the accreditation process:
To find an HIV or HBV medication prescriber in South Australia, visit the ASHM website: www.ashm.org.au/prescriber-maps.
The Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) listing of direct acting antiviral medications for hepatitis C under section 85 (General Schedule) means medical practitioners no longer need to be accredited under the section 100 HSD program to be eligible to prescribe.
For further information on treating hepatitis C in the community, go to the Hepatitis C community prescribing page.
