Melanoma New Zealand

Melanoma New Zealand

Melanoma NZ is a registered charity devoted to issues relating to melanoma. Our vision is for no deaths from melanoma in New Zealand.


New Zealand has the highest incidence of melanoma in the world. 6,000 melanomas are diagnosed in New Zealand every year, and over 300 Kiwis will die of melanoma every year.

Melanoma New Zealand is the only charity in NZ dedicated to preventing avoidable deaths and suffering caused by melanoma.

Your donation helps to raise awareness in the community about prevention & early detection & encourage more clinical research.

It will also help us:

* Provide information about all aspects of melanoma to all New Zealanders

* Promote regular skin checks for early detection

* Increase access to high-quality clinical care

* Leverage relationships to amplify our effectiveness

* Be financially sustainable to achieve our mission

Since opening our education & support centre in Feb 2011, we have had a huge increase in the number of patients & enquiries about melanoma. Visit for more information.

Thank you for your support.
