A group of NICaN Ambassadors and researches from Australia will travel to New Zealand to take part in a regional symposium on 19 and 20 February: Indigenous people and cancer: a shared agenda for Aotearoa, Australia, and Pacific nations.

Cancer is one of the most important health problems facing our region. Renowned regional and global collaborators will join participants in this symposium to provide the most up to date picture of the impact of cancer among the Indigenous peoples of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. We will identify, debate and discuss strategies that aim to reduce cancer incidence and improve cancer outcomes among the region’s Indigenous populations.
