Abstract

We report three cases of immigrants to Australia, living with HIV/AIDS, who, while travelling in countries of origin or migration, were unable to continue to take their antiretrovirals appropriately. We discuss the possible reasons for this and ways to reduce the possibility of it happening. Travel may be a significant risk factor for non-adherence; pre-travel advice and planning might help to prevent it occurring.
