Politicians urged to ‘front up’ on cancer
CANGO, an alliance of eight major cancer NGOs, including New Zealand Gynaecological Cancer Foundation, launched a manifesto last night calling for political parties to commit to tackling cancer; New Zealand’s number one killer.
The CANGO cancer manifesto identifies seven key areas in which the next government can make a profound impact on cancer in New Zealand and urges all political parties to front up to this responsibility.
1. Reducing modifiable risk factors for cancer
2. Achieving equity for all New Zealanders across the cancer care continuum
3. Prioritising the rollout of the national bowel cancer screening programme
4. Developing, publishing and reporting on a robust cancer workforce plan
5. Improving data to ensure effective management and planning of cancer services
6. Increasing access and investment in clinical trials and research as part of the cancer treatment
7. Addressing the palliative care needs of an aging population
CANGO’s manifesto calls for intensified efforts to reduce New Zealanders’ exposure to known cancer risks. One in three cancer deaths is attributed to risk factors that can be modified such as smoking, alcohol, inactivity and poor diet.
A copy of the CANGO Election Manifesto document: Addressing the New Zealand Cancer Burden - a critical election issue can be downloaded here.
CANGO (Cancer Non-Governmental Organisations) is an alliance of eight prominent New Zealand cancer charities: Beat Bowel Cancer Aotearoa, New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation, Cancer Society of New Zealand, New Zealand Gynaecological Cancer Foundation, Hospice New Zealand, Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand, Melanoma Foundation of New Zealand, and Prostate
The alliance came together in 2007 to increase collaboration across cancer charities with the shared goal of reducing the incidence and impact of cancer on New Zealand and New Zealanders.
