Welcome to Prevent Global
HPV Cancers

Healthcare professionals are the most trusted source of health-related information for parents, guardians, and the community. A strong recommendation from a healthcare professional – physicians, nurses, community health workers, and more – can increase the likelihood of parents/guardians protecting their girls with the HPV vaccine.

Prevent Global HPV Cancers and the resources within were designed by and for medical, government, and civil society organisations in lower-resourced communities. It features behaviour change communications research with health care professionals that can help inform an organisation’s HPV vaccination education and communication efforts.

Prevent Global HPV Cancers Initiative

Prevent Global HPV Cancers is a collaborative initiative supported by the American Cancer Society’s Global HPV Cancer Free program working to connect leaders in ministries of health, medical societies, and civil society organisations to evidence-based tools and resources. This initiative aims to help normalise HPV vaccination as cancer prevention among healthcare professionals and parents/guardians to create demand for and uptake of the vaccine, especially in lower-resourced communities where death and suffering from cervical cancer remains unnecessarily high.
