Prevent Global HPV Cancers‘ tools and resources are designed with and for ministries of health, medical societies, and civil society organisations to help organisations work with health professionals to increase HPV vaccinations among adolescent girls in lower-resourced communities.

Health care professionals – from physicians to community health workers – are the most trusted source of health information for parents, guardians, and the community. A strong recommendation from a health care professional can increase the likelihood of parents protecting their girls from HPV cancers including cervical cancer with the HPV vaccine.

Why care? Why now?

  • Every 2 minutes, a woman is dying of cervical cancer in our world today – a cancer we can eliminate!
  • 9 out of 10 women dying from cervical cancer live in lower-resourced countries and communities.
  • On-time HPV vaccination can stop HPV infections that can cause cervical cancer and 4 other types of cancers in women.
  • HPV vaccination is a lifesaving, cost-effective strategy for higher- and lower-resourced countries alike.

Learn About Cervical Cancer and
HPV Vaccination

Cervical cancer is an urgent public health problem that can be solved. The deaths and suffering of hundreds of thousands of women worldwide can be prevented. Nearly all cervical cancers are caused by persistent infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV) and most can be prevented by HPV vaccination. Given on-time to girls aged 9 –14 years, HPV vaccination can help create generations of women free from cervical cancer.
