HPV screening research projects: Information for researchers

Information on our website about the HPV screening programme is currently in the process of being updated. Please be aware that the below information may be outdated as we transition to new HPV primary screening process. Our team is working hard to ensure the most accurate and up to date details are made available. We anticipate having this new information live by the end of June.

Researchers planning projects related to HPV screening should check the requirements of the NSU in relation to research.

The requirements information is for individuals or groups proposing to conduct research projects that will or may involve National Screening Unit (NSU) screening programmes or pathways in New Zealand.

The Ministry of Health has an overarching responsibility to ensure activities carried out in New Zealand occur within safe standards of practice, and that the integrity of NSU screening programmes and their registers are maintained. This applies to research as well as service work.

The NSU is keen to support high quality research projects relevant to screening programmes in New Zealand and to build a cooperative and collaborative relationship with the research community.

Researchers who wish to notify or discuss a research proposal are invited to contact the NSU by email at [email protected]. Please include the word “research” in the subject line.
