1:15 Diabetes sufferers stigmatised

A quarter of a million Kiwis have been diagnosed with diabetes, and a new study has revealed many of them face prejudice and stigma everyday. 

Some are discriminated against at work, others are judged for what they eat, and even for injecting crucial insulin shots they need. 

The report by Diabetes New Zealand is the first time stigma has been studied in the country. CEO Heather Verry is here to tell us more.

1:25 Sexual harassment in the Cook Islands hospitality industry

The Cook Islands are tourist hub, a place for people to unwind and soak up the culture and sights. 

Many communities rely on the tourism and hospitality industries but there's a problem, an underlying issue of sexual harassment. 

That's according to research by Lisa Sadaraka, programme leader for AUT's Bachelor of International Hospitality Management.

Lisa, a Cook Islander herself, has been looking into the causes, and the impact, of visitors sexually harassing hospitality workers.

1:35 Bedtime stories from inside prison

Keeping whanau connected when a parent is in jail is important. It helps children know they are loved even when they can't physically be close.

Kerryn Palmer runs the programme, and she tells us about their latest fundraising campaign.
