PHARMAC's Board, which is appointed by the Minister of Health, is ultimately responsible for all of PHARMAC's decisions.
With a staff of more than 100 full- and part-time employees, PHARMAC is a relatively small and focused organisation.
Work at PHARMAC includes seeking clinical information, undertaking economic analysis, developing information or social marketing campaigns, and negotiating with pharmaceutical companies. It takes a range of skills and expertise to do this work effectively.
