Overview

Nearly all cases of cervical cancer are caused by infection with high-risk types of human papilloma virus (HPV).  The virus also has been linked to cancers of the vagina, vulva, anus, penis, oropharynx (back of the throat) and several other cancers.  Each year in the US, an estimated 30,700 men and women will receive a diagnosis of cancer caused by HPV.  Clinics have the power to make a lasting impact on HPV vaccination and help reduce the HPV-related cancer burden in their communities.  This workshop will provide the latest updates on dosage, quality improvement initiatives, and detailed steps, evidence-based strategies, and tools for Community Health Centers to increase their HPV vaccination rates.
