Reason No.1

We are the only source of independent, quality journalism about current events in pharmacy 

No one knows pharmacy like we do. Pharmacy Today | Kaitiaki Rongoā o te Wā has survived the test of time to become the only source of independent news and education for pharmacy, and key aspects of the wider health sector. We understand the nuances of the pharmacy sector and how government policy affects the professional and business lives of those that make the pharmacy sector tick.

Reason No.2

We’re 100 per cent Kiwi owned

We may be based in Auckland, but our heart lies in all of Aotearoa New Zealand. Back in 2015, the global owners of MIMS NZ Ltd, publishers of Pharmacy Today | Kaitiaki Rongoā o te Wā, were looking to sell the company's publishing assets. Anna Mickell had been working for the company a decade earlier. Together with New Zealand Doctor editor Barbara Fountain, they set up The Health Media to purchase those publishing assets - Pharmacy Today, @Pharmacy Today, New Zealand Doctor, Doctor@Large, Everybody Patient Sheets and the Healthcare Handbook. Since 2015, they have added ELearning and The Roster Te Rārangi. Early this year, The Health Media launched the New Zealand Primary Healthcare Awards | He Tohu Mauri Ora and next up are The Popcorn Panels.
