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.

 5,000 gastro-intestinal cancers are diagnosed each year in New Zealand – more than breast or prostate cancer.

Over half of those affected, die within five years.

We fund vital clinical research and raise awareness.
