treatment option in thailand is quite ok from cheap(public hospital) to expensive (private hospital) most drug are available except very latest one like Stribilid, complera, Atripla is not available instead u have to take sustiva and truvada).  If u can't take Atripla second and third option can be expensive in this country there is no co-pay of any kind here. I don't know about insurance though.

Hope this help.

Anqueetas, my understanding is that they do not screen for HIV for a work permit. They do however screen for syphilis.

Atripla is now available in Thailand. It has been for several months now. If purchased privately at Bumrungrad (in my opinion the best hospital in Bangkok) one months supply is about 4,300 Thai baht or about $140.

I do not have a support in terms of friends or family. I'm going there to teach English, probably in January/February. Not sure of what city I will be in- it depends on the positions available.

While I do love mangos ;D, this is an opportunity for me to live abroad and experience a new culture for a year. An adventure! I figure now is as good of a time as ever.

It is a fabulous culture and they are very keen on learning to speak English. 

If I learn/find anything that may interest you I'll let you know.

Yes there is a generic from India separately into two pill called Ricovir-em(entrimabicine, tenofovir) and Stocrin(Efavirenz) cost around 2000baht a month and Atripla at some big hospital according to Matt.
