Head lice (Pediculus humanus capitis) infestation is a global public health issue
— the prevalence estimates range from 5% in Europe to 33% in Central and South America.1 Prevalence of head lice infestation in Australian schools has been reported to be as high as 34%. Most head lice treatments are over-the-counter medicines, available without a prescription and readily available in pharmacies. It is essential that pharmacists have the knowledge and skills to assess, counsel and recommend appropriate evidence-based treatments for head lice.
