Preparing for the introduction of HPV vaccines: policy and programme guidance for countries. (.pdf, 597 KB)
This guidance note is based on a UNFPA/WHO Technical Consultation on HPV Vaccines and Sexual and Reproductive Health Programmes, held in March 2006 in Montreux, Switzerland.
The report is intended to alert a broad array of stakeholders – in sexual and reproductive health, immunization, child and adolescent health, and cancer control programmes – to some of the key issues surrounding the upcoming introduction of HPV vaccines against cervical cancer. It highlights the contributions that national immunization programmes, sexual and reproductive health programmes, and cancer control programmes can make in preparing for national introduction of the vaccines in the context of the Global Immunization Vision and Strategy.
