Stay on your treatment
It is vital that once you start treatment for HIV, you stay on your treatment. To stay on your treatment, you need to be organised. You must take your medicine every day as prescribed, and you should return to your healthcare facility or doctor before your medicine runs out. You must go for your regular check-ups and blood tests.
Once your doctor is happy that you are doing well on your treatment, you will get a repeat prescription so you don’t have to go back to your clinic or hospital every month and stand in queues just to collect your antiretroviral treatment.
Right to Care’s pharmaceutical company, Right ePharmacy, has made it easy for you to collect your medicine through our Pharmacy Dispensing Units and Collect & Go smart lockers.
Pharmacy Dispensing Units or ATM pharmacies
ATM pharmacies are currently found in Joburg and Bloemfontein. They are located at busy locations close to where patients live and work. Why wait in long queues at your local clinic every month when you are well, and just need to collect repeat medicine?
With a simple 5-step process you can get your month’s medicine in 3 minutes.
Patient scans the barcode from their ID book, ID card or pharmacy card and enters their PIN
Patient talks to a remote pharmacist (like in a Skype call)

The medicine is robotically dispensed and labelled and drops in the collection slot

Collect & Go
We are installing Collect & Go smart lockers at 70 sites across Gauteng, Mpumalanga and the Free State.
Right ePharmacy has adapted smart locker technology to develop Collect & Go smart lockers for medicine. The electronic lockers are secure and safely store your monthly chronic medication so you can quickly and easily collect it close to where you live and work at a time that suits you.
Public healthcare patients who are stable on their chronic medication can use Collect & Go. Most patients who use Collect & Go have:
- high blood pressure,
