In the News:

Excellent RNZ article by Stephen Forbes describing the call from Dr John Baker, endocrinologist and Chair of Diabetes Foundation Aotearoa, for transparency around submissions regarding funding of vital medications for diabetes.  Dr Baker has tirelessly advocated for modern drugs, such as Empagliflozin and Dulaglutide.  If made appropriately accessible, these newer medications commonly used elsewhere in the world, could help improve the health of 1000's of New Zealanders with diabetes, particularly those at risk of complications such as kidney disease and heart problems.      https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/430843/pharmac-diabetes-foundation-locked-in-stand-off-over-drug-funding-decision
