About this site

The HPV Information Centre compiles, processes, and disseminates country-specific information related to HPV and cervical cancer to facilitate global, regional- and country-specific decisions on current and novel options for the prevention of cervical cancer. The Centre provides an efficient web-based communication between the research field, the medical communities and the public health professionals and decision-makers on a worldwide scale. Relevant data on disease burden and associated risk factors, prevention strategies, screening activities, and immunization programmes are available.
