HPV Vaccine Uptake in Cancer Centers


In response to the President’s Cancer Panel’s report Accelerating HPV Vaccination Uptake: Urgency for Action to Prevent Cancer, three rounds of supplements were issued to NCI-designated cancer centers that focused on increasing HPV vaccination rates in regions with low HPV vaccination uptake. NCI funded 18 supplements in 2014, 12 supplements in 2017, and 11 supplements in 2020.

The HPV Cancer Center Consortium emerged as part of a broader initiative that brought together cancer centers, researchers, and healthcare practitioners with the shared goal of increasing HPV vaccine utilization and reducing HPV-related cancers.

This consortium is dedicated to cancer control, conducting research, strategic planning, fostering professional collaborations, and implementing initiatives to enhance healthcare.
