Hei Āhuru Mōwai National Māori Cancer Leadership Aotearoa

Māori cancer researchers and advocates committed to less Māori getting cancer and more Māori surviving cancer.


Our purpose:

Kia ora e te whānau.

In Aotearoa Māori have a 20% higher cancer incidence rate, and a 200% higher mortality rate than non-Māori. This is intolerable, unjust and inequitable. We have found inequities and differential treatment at nearly every step of the cancer continuum.

We are the only network in Aotearoa that provides a space for Māori cancer specialists to come together, research, collaborate and address inequities collectively.

Our charity is made up of Māori cancer professionals, clinicians, researchers and whānau who are dedicated to less Māori getting cancer, more Māori surviving cancer and cancer control being whānau centered, ora enabling, mauri restoring, mana enhancing and wairua protective.

The 4 pou of our whare are:

Māngai - we unapologetically advocate for better outcomes for whānau

Rangahau - we research and influence other researchers to deliver better outcomes for whānau

Mātauranga - we provide expert cancer knowledge to the sector

Āhuru - we provide a safe space for Māori experts to connect, research, collaborate and create

Our charity is driven by aroha and volunteer hours and we rely heavily on community support.
