Let’s lower skin cancer rates in New Zealand.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in New Zealand, with over 90% of all skin cancers in New Zealand caused by UV exposure. Over time, UV radiation from the sun can harm unprotected skin and damage our skin cells' DNA leading to skin cancer.

We know that a skin cancer diagnosis can have an impact on every part of your life. Even though it’s more common in older people, anyone can get skin cancer.

Test your SunSmart knowledge by taking our quiz today and help spread awareness about the importance of reducing the risk of skin cancer. Thanks to our supporters, we are here for everyone affected by skin cancer when they need it most.
