    The Maori Party is pledging to start cancer screening 10 years earlier for Maori

    The Maori Party is pledging to start cancer screening 10 years earlier for Maori


    Co-leader John Tamihere says Maori develop cancer a decade sooner than the general population.

    He says current screening ages mean Maori arrive at hospitals with levels of illness that could have been avoided.
