Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand

The Breast Cancer Foundation NZ promotes breast awareness and early detection to all women and men; we're helping break down the barriers that stop every eligible woman getting her mammogram; and we’re actively encouraging the development and testing of new technologies for early detection.

We’re funding the latest technologies and equipment for our hospitals, ensuring Kiwis have access to new treatments as early as possible, and training our doctors and nurses to use them. We’re supporting clinical trials, and lobbying for wider access to trials of new drugs. We’re urging the government to introduce powerful new drugs faster. We’re funding world-class Kiwi researchers to develop new treatments, including a vaccine that could prevent cancers spreading beyond the breast.

We’re actively supporting patients recovering from treatment and those living long term with breast cancer, to improve their quality of life and extend survival.
