Our HPV Vaccination Initiatives

We work at the national and community level to increase HPV vaccination uptake. Our initiatives seek to advance best practices, increase collaboration, and provide leadership.

National HPV Vaccination Roundtable

The National HPV Vaccination Roundtable, established by the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2014, is a national coalition of public organizations, private organizations, voluntary organizations, and invited individuals dedicated to reducing the incidence of and mortality from HPV-associated cancer in the U.S., through coordinated leadership and strategic planning.

HPV VACs Program 

The goal of the HPV VACs (Vaccinate Adolescents against Cancers) Program is to increase HPV vaccination rates for adolescents across the nation.

With a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Cancer Society will expand current cancer prevention and early detection activities with federally qualified health care centers (FQHCs) to increase HPV vaccination through improved provider awareness and education and improved system-wide processes. Additionally, we partner with state health departments and other state-based entities to facilitate system changes that increase the availability and utilization of the HPV vaccine.
