Cancer and other medicines: Track our progress to funding

Following the budget injection from the Government, we're moving fast to fund the medicines on our Options for Investment list.


This page lists the funding applications we have been able to progress because of the 2024 budget increase. 

We will add applications to this page as they reach consultation stage. We cannot give information on which applications are coming next. We need to maintain secrecy while we are negotiating with pharmaceutical companies.

You can check our complete options for investment list(external link), which has every application that we would like to fund. 

Cancer medicines

Non-cancer medicines

Our funding boost is allowing Pharmac to fund many of the high-priority medicines that are high on our options for investment list. Funding these medicines helps address many conditions with a high health need.
