Pacific people's opinions about prescription charges
10 weeks

Lay summary

This research is looking at Pacific people's opinions on prescription charges. It is something that affects us all and studies show that Pacific people have poorer health and a lower socio-economic status so it affects them the most. The aim of this research is to see if Pacific people are aware of how prescription charges work and know that they are entitled to free medicines after paying 20 items every year. Knowing this information can make it a lot easier for them to afford medicines.
