The Board organizes two meetings per year, one with a focus on technical issues, the second on a SWOT analysis of a country/region. Technical meetings include topics such as newer vaccines, vaccine safety, comparison of vaccine strategies, the need for booster doses, health economics, immunization of males, impact of vaccine on non-cervical diseases such as head and neck and anal cancers, screening technologies and strategies, dealing with anti-vaccine messages, et cetera. Country meetings take place in key countries and regions. Here, the Board invites local health authorities to present data on coverage of screening and immunization as well as impact and control strategies.
