We are one of four Regional Cancer Networks in New Zealand established to implement the NZ Cancer Control Strategy Action Plan 2005-2010. In October 2008 the Network established a Māori Leadership Group to provide tikanga and kaupapa Māori guidance and strategic advice, and to develop and promote Māori aspiration within all Network activities.
The goals of the Network are based on those of the Cancer Control Strategy being to:
- reduce the incidence and impact of cancer in the Northern region;
- reduce inequalities with respect to cancer in the Northern region
Northern Cancer Network partners come from across the Northern region and work at different stages of the cancer continuum: Northern Region DHBs, Non-Governmental Organisations, GPs and Primary Health Organisations, cancer service providers, cancer consumers and their family or whānau, hospices, and research organisations.
