What we do

Education programme

​The Breast Cancer Foundation NZ delivers an effective breast cancer and breast health awareness education programme.

The programme increases community awareness and understanding of breast cancer and breast health awareness and aims to:

  • increase the number of women over 40 who have mammograms
  • improve information about breast cancer
  • to increase breast health awareness and knowledge of risks and lifestyle choices
  • reach out to at risk communities – Maori and Pacific Islanders/rural NZ
  • to increase knowledge of support/resources available through the foundation

Our National Educators are available for presentations within all sectors of the community; work places, community centres/houses, events, government and non-government organisations, sector groups, disability and mental health services as well as men's and women’s services.

These sessions can be tailored to the needs of individual workplaces/groups – from 30 minutes to one hour.

For requests outside of the greater Auckland area several presentations may be coordinated in the same region in order to keep costs to a minimum. This may require some flexibility with times/dates.

For an inquiry/booking please email breasthealth@bcf.org.nz

Educators work alongside Maori and Pacific service providers to ensure the information provided for their women/men is accurate and appropriate. Our key focus is to work alongside at risk communities to improve their breast cancer outcomes.

Comprehensive online educational resources are also available.
