Petition for Patient Voice Aotearoa: Reform Pharmac and double the Pharmac budget

There are issues involving Pharmac and how they fund medicines – Pharmac does not adopt international guidelines; it does not set a timeframe by which it will be decided if a medicine is efficacious and another timeframe when it will endeavour to fund a medicine if it is deemed to be efficacious; it needs to establish a rapid access scheme; and the budget needs to be increased as its budget is just over 5% of the Vote Health budget in comparison with the OECD average of 16%.
