The goal of the Global HPV Cancer Free program is to create a world free of HPV cancers, starting with cervical cancer.
In order to achieve this, we focus on normalizing HPV vaccine as cancer prevention so that…
Our ongoing programs, both at country and global levels, convene and collaborate with multiple stakeholders to normalize HPV vaccine as cervical cancer prevention.
Country-Specific Behavioral Change Work Interventions. Within the realm of HPV vaccination, evidence suggests that vaccination rates can be increased by as much as 30% with simple and low-cost behavioral change interventions that address cognitive barriers. We co-develop and implement these interventions with partners in ministries of health, medical societies, and cancer organizations to increase the uptake of HPV vaccine among physicians and parents in three countries:
ACS in collaboration with the Cancer Foundation of India and Together for Health produced this digital story that shares a parental perspective on preventing cervical cancer with the HPV vaccine in India.
Global Convening and Partnerships and Messaging. ACS leads global partnerships and efforts in cervical cancer elimination.
Global Messaging: Developing a digital repository of tested behavior change communication messages and actions developed in LMICs for LMICs for cervical cancer prevention. This dynamic digital space for LMICs will connect ministries of health, health systems, medical societies, community health workers, and civil society organizations trying to change parent and clinician behaviors to increase the uptake of HPV vaccination with peers and tools to achieve it.
