Healthy collaboration

The state House unanimously passed a bill by Rep. Gallop Franklin that would allow pharmacists to help in the fight against HIV/AIDS. HB 159 authorizes pharmacists to work collaboratively with physicians to help adults exposed to HIV. It would allow pharmacists to screen for HIV exposure, advise that they seek a physician consultation and dispense HIV-PEP medication prescribed by a licensed health care practitioner.

“Enlisting pharmacists in this struggle is an incredible force multiplier that will reduce barriers and allow quick delivery of life-saving medication to people when they need it most,” Franklin said after the bill passed the House.
