Purple House Cancer Support are members of the HPV Alliance, which was launched on the 9th August 2017.  The HPV Vaccination Alliance is a group of organisations that have come together to sign a contract against cancer, specifically HPV-related cancers.
Recent media coverage shows a fall-off in uptake of the HPV vaccine, which is offered to first-year second level school girls each year. The vaccine protects against strains of the HPV virus which cause seven in ten of all cases of cervical cancer, as well as a number of other cancers that affect men and women.
The HPV Vaccination Alliance has been set up ahead of the new school year and will see organisations from the health, children’s and women’s sectors come together to encourage everyone to look at the facts surrounding this life-saving vaccine.
