No more discrimination regarding Cancer screening

The discrimination with regards to bowel cancer screening is dividing our communities even more. 

Why the contribution is important

Cancer does not choose one ethnicity over another, nor does it discriminate.  What it does is it kills and very efficently at that.  All people regardless of age , sex or race should have access to free screening for bowel cancer not just the Maori and Pacific Islanders. 

There are just as many if not more, European people in their 30's, 40's and 50's who have bowel cancer that goes undetected as Maori and Pacific Islanders.

I can't believe the racists segration within our health system.  Aparthied does not belong in NZ and does not belong in our health system. 

Decentralising healthcare will bring back equality and banish the need for time wasting and dollar wasting advertising.  Funding back to the DHB's is the only way out of this particular mistake. 

Thousands of people will die from undetected cancers with this current health system.  Centralising healthcare doesn't work.
