Every year, more than 30,000 human papillomavirus (HPV)-related cancers
are diagnosed. Many
of these could have been prevented by HPV vaccination. The HPV vaccine is
recommended for boys and girls at age 11 or 12.
To increase awareness that the HPV vaccine is cancer prevention, CDC has
funded the American Cancer Society to work with partners to promote
activities that improve HPV vaccination delivery.
The National HPV Vaccination Roundtable will bring together immunization a
nd cancer prevention stakeholders to provide education, outreach, and training
to the public and to health care providers. Through engagement and
coordination with experts in immunization and cancer, the Roundtable
will help promote and implement HPV vaccination, preventing future cancers.
