We're out to make sure New Zealand men understand they have a choice about getting checked for prostate cancer. Our aim is to make the journey easier, allowing them, and their whānau, to make that decision.

Kupe is a decision support tool to help New Zealand men tackle the decision to get a prostate check. It will give them the knowledge they need to make decisions without fear. And together with whānau, they can start their journey.

This safe, online tool asks simple questions about age, family history and feelings around getting a check. It provides support and suggests next steps. And helps men and their whānau learn about prostate cancer along the way.

Kupe helps New Zealand men understand the unknown and move forward.
