Why is Bowel Screening Important?

Every year, more than 3000 New Zealanders are diagnosed with bowel cancer and more than 1200 die from it.

Māori are more likely than non-Māori to die from bowel cancer, partly because Māori are more likely to be diagnosed with bowel cancer at an advanced stage when it is more difficult to treat.

This free National Bowel Screening Programme aims to save lives by detecting bowel cancer at an early stage, when it can often be successfully treated and has a focus on initiatives that drive equitable participation for all population groups.

The National Bowel Screening Programme has a focus on driving initiatives that support equitable participation for all population groups.
