Hi Linda,
I'm not sure whether this link is of benefit and the same as the IDIS that Angel quoted in her post. Good luck I hope you can find a source.

Halaven has received approval in Australia.
Im not sure when it will be available but it still can be acessed through IDIS (although a little more expensive)
