The link between Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and cervical cancer is well known. Since 2008, 85% of girls have been are vaccinated with a vaccine that can prevent up to 70% of cervical cancers, but about boys? HPV causes other kinds of cancers, including Head and Neck cancer and over the past 15 years the number of head and neck cancers have trebled in Wales. So would vaccinating boys be effective in reducing this number?
Join HPV experts at this event to find out more about HPV- related cancers and the latest research and discuss the evidence whether we should vaccinate boys against the HPV virus as well as girls. You will have the opportunity to ask your own questions to our experts so join us for this topical and engaging event.
