||and he recently got infected with hiv. Is he still allowed to move to OZ?|

At a rough guess, Yes.
Once you have the VIsa, there are no more questions asked. You just come through customs.
I can't recall any questions being asked about health, after you get the PR visa.

thanks for the quick reply. what about applying for medicare card? will there be a problem with that? im guessing the personal insurance is gonna cost a lot more.
another question is regarding the hiv drugs, are they subsidised in australia?
thanks in advanced for answering.

I thought that you were supposed to inform imm of any changes from when you get the visa to when you get here ? Mind you, if you don't, how are they going to know ?
Medicare cards are issued when you get here and show the relevant doc such as visa in passport etc so shouldn't be a problem with that. No idea if the drugs are subsided though. Sorry.

I did find this info:
A standard Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme PBS prescription cost from 1st Jan 2009 is $32.90 for general patients. But I would try to check the section 100 prescriptions, as they may be different.
You can look up costs at http://www.epharmacy.com.au if you know the Australian equivalent brand name.
