Vaccinations as a strategy for cancer prevention

Over half a million women are estimated to be diagnosed with an HPV-related cancer each year. Many people are unaware that in North America, HPV is a risk factor for not only cervical cancers, but also oral, anal and penile cancers in both genders. 

Recent research reveals by having the HPV vaccination, adults 27-45 years old can prevent the vast majority of all HPV-associated cancers. Despite new guidelines and enhanced screening efforts, vaccination coverage remains well below goals world-wide.

For more details, see what University researchers from several Public Health Departments in Philadelphia, Texas and Indiana have published regarding the awareness and knowledge of HPV and HPV vaccination among adults:  https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0264410X20300797?via%3Dihub&fbclid=IwAR09KcD6duMtC5m_Aab32WsnOm_L6-xOp7LpTZ_zHyKdqEJxJvwn80PIFRg
