Agree with you that everyone should be given an APAP. Even here in the US, people are given "bricks" by DME's. But at least you can advocate for yourself or get a doctor to agree to an APAP.
At least untill you can get this all worked out, try to get your pressure raised a bit. A competent doctor or DME should realize that a higher pressure is needed if you are experiencing headaches.
