The Australian government has reaffirmed its commitment to cervical cancer elimination in a statement on the recent adoption of the Global Strategy. Australia played a critical role in the development of the World Health Assembly resolution.
While striving to eliminate cervical cancer within its borders by 2035, the country is also supporting the global community in achieving the strategy’s 90-70-90 targets. The Honorable Greg Hunt, Minister for Health, has stated: “We now stand ready to work with the international community to take these commitments forward.”
We applaud Australia for embracing this ambitious challenge and thank the government for its commitment to the elimination agenda. We look forward to continuing to work together to eliminate cervical cancer for women and girls everywhere.
