Australia's regulatory agency, the TGA, has changed the regulations controlling the supply of HIV test kits. Under the new arrangements, companies are only permitted to supply registered kits to laboratories authorised by the state and territory health authorities and payment of tests will only be provided to these laboratories. Companies will be expected to negotiate directly with states or territories and laboratories on prices, says the Australian Therapeutic Device Bulletin.
