Siemens Healthineers brings breakthrough innovations to market, helping healthcare professionals to deliver high-quality care, leading to the best possible outcome for patients.

An impressive company to work for, Siemens Healthineers is hosting an event on equity in women’s health, supporting the 76th World Health Assembly, together with Movement Health 2030 and City Cancer Challenge.

Held in Geneva Switzerland in World Health Assembly week, the event reflects on progress made regarding breast and cervical cancer. Breast and cervical cancer continue to be the leading causes of death among women in low- and middle-income countries. Many stakeholders have stepped up in the past few years to improve cancer diagnostics and care, ultimately extending life.

Through the event, Siemens Healthineers hosts expert leaders sharing insight on responding to women’s cancers in low resource settings.
