The government will provide all possible help. It plays an important role in strengthening the economic development of the state. Hence there is a need for an integrated approach in this area. There is a huge potential for the private sector in this work.

Sharing the proactive approach of CII, he mentioned that CII has identified 4 government hospitals in Varanasi.

Neelima Dwivedi, Executive Director, Public Policy Communications and Market Access, shared information about cervical cancer. He said that cervical cancer is caused by human papilloma virus. It is the second most common type of cancer found in Indian women. It is really disappointing to see that every 8 minutes in India a woman dies due to cervical cancer. However, with timely diagnosis, treatment and vaccination, cervical cancer is curable and can be prevented.
