Pink Caravan

Pop in for free breast health advice

Each year our breast health nurses travel around New Zealand in our iconic Pink Caravan, to talk about mammograms, offer advice about checking your breasts, healthy lifestyles and family risk. They visit our country’s smaller towns – places that don’t have access to the variety of health services the bigger cities do.

Our breast nurses would love to have a chat to you, so check out where the caravan is headed and when it comes to a town near you, pop in and say hi.

Early detection saves lives

Breast cancer is the number one cancer for NZ women

These days its much more treatable if found early. That's why the Pink Caravan breast nurses are hitting the road - to boost breast health awareness.

They'll answer any breast health questions, give advice on when to start mammograms and show you breast changes to look out for. So you can get any changes checked out.

Pop into the Pink Caravan for free advice and support. No appointment necessary.
