30 Aug Update to childhood cancer incidence and survival data
Updated analysis on childhood cancer incidence and survival for the periods 2015–2019 and 2010-2019 have now been produced by the National Child Cancer Network.
We are pleased to report that the overall childhood cancer survival in Aotearoa, New Zealand has continued to rise and remains on par with other high-income countries. However, we acknowledge that patterns of poorer survival by cancer type, age and ethnicity deserve focused attention. The National Child Cancer Network will continue to work with child cancer professionals, NGO’s and whānau to further improve child cancer outcomes.
