  •    

發佈日期:2019/06/10

Foreigners (include PRC) come to Taiwan to travel or work. If they have high-risk sexual behaviors and are infected with HIV, they can take the initiative to seek hospitals for PEP. (Not all of HIV-designated hospitals provide PEP, please refer to the list of hospitals of the CDC, link at the end of this article)

PEP process after exposure to foreigners

1. Within 72 hours after the occurrence of the risk behavior, go to the nearest designated hospital for medical treatment.( some hospital emergency departments can prescribe PEP)

2. Indicate your foreign identity, and remember to bring your passport. (PRC citizens can use Taiwan pass)

3. Visit the clinic according to the appointment time and location.

4. The doctor assesses risk situation. If you have high-risk sexual behaviors, the doctor will prescribe 28 days’ medicine for you.

5. Foreigners who visit the hospital for the first time, need to fill out the basic information form. The form may take you ten minutes. After the doctor check the information, the doctor will give you the prescription and the bill.

6. Pay the bill at the cashier (foreigners don’t have health insurance, so you should pay all medical payments), most designated hospitals can pay the bill by credit card.

7.After you pay the bill, you can receive your prescription at the dispensary.

外國人(含大陸人)來臺灣旅遊或工作,若發生高風險性行為,有感染愛滋病毒(HIV)之虞,可以主動至指定醫院尋求《暴露後預防性投藥》(PEP)。

(非所有愛滋指定醫院皆提供暴露後預防性投藥,請參照疾管署的醫院名單)

 

外籍人士暴露後預防性投藥流程

1.風險行為發生後72小時內,至就近指定醫院掛感染科門診(部分醫院提供急診服務)

2.表明外籍身分,記得攜帶護照(如大陸人身份,可帶臺灣通行證)

3.根據掛號的預約時間以及地點前往診療室就診

4.醫師評估風險情境,若判定是高風險性行為,會開立28天的抗病毒阻斷藥

5.外籍人士(大陸人)首次在臺灣醫院就診,需填寫基本資訊表,包含身高、體重、血壓等基本資訊,均有儀器可以現場測量,醫護人員會告知測量儀器所在位置,填寫表格時間約十分鐘即可,繳回基本資料表,待醫師看診確認後,醫師會立即開立處方及批價單

7.持批價單至繳費處繳交費用(外籍人士/大陸人均以自費看診),大部分的指定醫院均可使用信用卡/銀聯卡付費。

8繳完醫藥費後,持繳費單和拿藥號碼,前往醫院附設的藥局窗口取藥。
