The program provides initial training, ongoing support and continuing professional development (CPD) activities for general practitioners prescribing Highly Specialised Drugs for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B in all states and territories across Australia. From 1 July 2015, accredited prescribers are able to initiate treatment and the medications can be dispensed in the community.​
