Pharmac funding protest at parliament

From Midday Report, 12:42 pm on 12 May 2021

Campaigners have been lying down on the cold, soggy grounds at Parliament calling for Pharmac's budget to be tripled to over three billion dollars within two years. Patient Voice Aotearoa is presenting a petition signed by more than 100,000 people - it states that New Zealanders are missing out on the most modern medicines and some are dying as a result. RNZ reporter Ruth Hill is at the protest and speaks to Max Towle.
