Welcome to our website. MelNet is a network of professionals committed to reducing the incidence and impact of melanoma in New Zealand.

Our Challenge

The control of melanoma in New Zealand requires an integrated consumer centred approach involving health promoters, health professionals, researchers and policy makers.

Our Objectives

  • Facilitating communication and collaboration between professionals with a commitment to reducing the incidence and impact of melanoma in New Zealand
  • Promoting education and the advancement of best practice among professionals working in the area of melanoma

Professional Membership

Membership is open to New Zealand professionals, including health promoters, health professionals, researchers and policy makers. Membership is free of charge.

Members will have access to a clinicians forum to share clinical cases, to obtain help with interpreting dermatoscopy images, and for general discussion about melanoma.
