NZ has the highest rates of melanoma cases and deaths in the world, study shows

New Zealand has both the highest rates of melanoma and highest melanoma death rates in the world, new research shows.

The findings, published on Thursday in JAMA Dermatology, showed melanoma rates were highest in New Zealand and Australia (combined) in 2020, followed by Western Europe, North America and Northern Europe. The highest rates of death from melanoma (the most serious form of skin cancer) were also seen in New Zealand.
