Most New Zealanders will be impacted by cancer in their lifetime – either directly, or through friends or family members affected by cancer. This plan sets NZ on a path to better cancer prevention, treatment and care over the next 10 years, so that New Zealanders living with cancer have access to high-quality care no matter who they are, or where they live.
The plan has four main goals:
- New Zealanders have a system that delivers consistent and modern cancer care.
- New Zealanders experience equitable cancer outcomes.
- New Zealanders have fewer cancers.
- New Zealanders have better cancer survival.
