Fijian women living in New Zealand do not have accessible options to family planning information compared to women in Fiji, according to a new study.

Auckland University of Technology's Dr Radilaite Cammock has been studying reproductive health of indigenous Fijian women for five years.

Dr Cammock's latest research surveyed 140 women in New Zealand and 212 women in Fiji.

She spoke with Sela Jane Hopgood about how she wanted to find out from her community their perspective about family planning and how that framed her research.
