HPV Action believes that the UK national HPV vaccination programme should include both boys and girls to prevent a range of HPV-related conditions, including cancers and genital warts. This would improve public health, tackle health inequalities and be cost-effective.
To highlight the issues involved in HPV vaccination for both boys and girls, HPV Action has produced a brief report drawing attention to the current issue while proposing how we need to tackle them.
Details inside the report include:
- Key messages
- Why vaccinate boys?
- Men who have sex with men: a target for vaccination?
- Equity and justice
- Other countries
- Parental acceptability
