Melanoma New Zealand

Welcome to our website. Melanoma New Zealand (formerly known as the Melanoma Foundation of New Zealand) is a registered charitable trust devoted to issues relating to melanoma. Our mission is to prevent avoidable deaths and suffering from melanoma.

New Zealand has the highest incidence rate of melanoma in the world. Over 4000 New Zealanders are diagnosed each year with melanoma. Around 300 New Zealanders die of melanoma every year.

Although the majority of melanomas occur in people over 50 years of age, it can occur at any age and even young children have been diagnosed.

Melanoma New Zealand is here to help with support and information for people with melanoma and their families.

Search the Melanoma section for information about prevention, diagnosis, treatment of melanoma and more.

Thanks to our wonderful supporters
