Welcome to The Gastro-Intestinal Cancer Institute

of New Zealand

Gastro-intestinal (GI) Cancer
is a group of cancers that affect the digestive system

i.e. the oesophagus, stomach, liver, gall bladder & bile ducts, pancreas and bowel.

GI cancer is the most common form of cancer

in New Zealand

GICI seeks to improve outcomes of GI cancer

through funding clinical research and raising awareness.


We are a registered New Zealand charity set up to improve outcomes for gastro-intestinal cancer. This group of cancers is not often spoken about but is collectively New Zealand’s most common form of cancer.

We are here to support clinical research in New Zealand and raise the public profile of this under-represented cancer.

GastroFest 2016 raises $85,000 for awareness and research. Thanks to our platinum sponsors Rothbury Insurance, Turners, Little Wolf as well as our gold sponsors Only Events and Cumulo9.
