Moving to Santiago, Chile - Any advice?
« on: January 08, 2019, 10:33:50 am »
Hey everyone,

I am supposed to be moving to Chile in a few months for a job, but the job is freelance with no health insurance. I'm currently taking Atripla, but I can't seem to find much information regarding it's availability and/or cost in Santiago. Does anyone have any advice on where to look, or how accessible the meds are?

I'd really love to take advantage of this opportunity, but when it comes to jobs outside of the US, my status seems to get in the way in most cases. If there's anyone who has worked abroad, I would greatly appreciate guidance and advice!

I have no country specific information on Chile. 

However, the British site Iwantprepnow  has information on a company that mails prep and treatment to various countries around the world. 


He is the link for Chile. 

Here is the contact info:


the carry a generic version of Atripla called VIRADAY and it is $138. for a 3 month supply. (Probably need to add postage.)  The site explains what is needed for Chile document wise. 

Best to try to contact an Aids service group in Chile but you probably need to have some fluency in Spanish.  Good luck.

Thanks for the information!

I've looked at purchase-prep.com before, but I've read a lot of negative reviews about them and Dynamix International so I'm a little wary about them. But it's definitely the most consistent option I'm finding, so it may be worth a shot.
