Welcome to our pae tukutuku. We are a network of Māori cancer specialists who are committed to Rangatiratanga in cancer control, eliminating cancer inequities between Māori and non-Māori and ensuring better outcomes for whānau.
In Aotearoa Māori have a 20% higher cancer incidence rate and are twice as likely to die than non-Māori.
These differences are intolerable, unfair and preventable
Our mission is to eliminate these inequities by influencing, researching and educating.
