Health Desk-17 Nov,2020: WHO‘s Global Strategy to Accelerate the Elimination of Cervical Cancer, launched Tuesday , outlines three key steps: vaccination, screening and treatment. Successful implementation of all three could reduce more than 40% of new cases of the disease and 5 million related deaths by 2050.

Tuesday's development represents a historic milestone because it marks the first time that 194 countries commit to eliminating cancer - following adoption of a resolution at this year’s World Health Assembly.
