  3. Reduce deaths from cervical cancer by promoting prevention, early detection, screening and treatment;
  4. Increase capacity of health workers and empower them to screen for and treat cervical pre-cancer through training and equipment;
  5. Increase capacity of health workers for clinical breast examination and empower them to promptly refer women with abnormalities;
  6. Promote public-private partnerships between national governments and in-country stakeholders to strengthen health systems in support of women’s health;
  7. Increase adoption of innovative strategies and technologies including for maternal health, family planning, breast and cervical cancer for improved women’s health.
