A new study aims to improving the chances of Maori men diagnosed with prostate cancer of surviving the disease.

The three year Oranga Tu study is being run collaboratively by University of Otago and University of Auckland researchers with communities in Otago and Waikato with funding of more than $500,000 from Movember.

Co-leader Dr Jacquie Kidd, a senior lecturer in nursing at Auckland, says rather than fund research proposals the charity sat down with researchers and asked what what would make life better for men with the cancer.

She says that was a chance to raise disparities in treatment and survival rates among Maori men, and look at the whole whanau.

Dr Kidd says Maori men are usually diagnosed with prostate cancer at a later stage because of the opportunistic nature of screening, and they are more likely to die of it.
