The Free Medicine Programme is a milestone project of the Fijian Government that was initiated in 2015. This scheme was introduced as part of the Governments initiative to ensure equity in terms of accessibility and availability of key medicines through private and public sector Pharmacies to citizens with an annual income of below $20,000. To redeem benefits under the programme, patients must be registered either under Free Medicine Programme or under the many social welfare schemes of the Fijian Government, including (the social pension scheme, poverty benefit scheme and child protection allowance scheme). Recent inclusion to the programme recipient list is patients who access medications under General Practitioner – Public Private Partnership Scheme.
Free Medicine Programme Reform was launched on the 14th of April, 2022. In accordance with the FMP Reform Agreement, upon presentation of a valid prescription, Private Pharmacies are able to dispense prescribed FMP products to qualified FMP recipients from their own inventory and redeem monetary reimbursements from the Ministry of Health & Medical Services. This reform has brought about significant changes to the programme facilitation and has injected greater efficiency in FMP service provision benefitting the many patients accessing services under the scheme.
