Vaccinating Europe to protect against HPV cancers
This project is connected to the ECO HPV Action Network. Find out more.
HPV is a very common sexually transmitted virus that affects both the male and female population.
Gender-neutral HPV vaccination is one of the flagship commitments of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan.
PROTECT-EUROPE is an EU4Health Project that champions gender-neutral vaccination programme in EU Member States to provide protection for everyone against cancers caused by HPV e.g. cervical, anal, penile, vaginal, vulval and oropharyngeal.
ECO is coordinating this EU Project under the EU4Health Programme 2021-2027 and leading the project communication, dissemination and exploitation efforts in consultation with other 33 project partners.
The project provides Member States with guidance on:
- Communication on HPV vaccination between clinicians and young people and their parents/caregivers
- Developing effective public health messaging on HPV vaccination aimed at young people and their parents/caregivers
- Proposing innovations that improve uptake (e.g. bundling adolescent vaccines)
In the News:
On 4 March, HPV Awareness Day, we will unveil the next building block in the expanding PROTECT-EUROPE project.
The new PROTECT-EUROPE Hub is an open-access, online repository for healthcare providers, policymakers and other stakeholders dedicated to fighting the human papilloma virus and the many cancers it causes. The new Hub contains the latest lessons learned from the project, including peer-reviewed discoveries, best practices, training modules, public awareness tools, and links to an assortment of valuable external resources.
The Hub will be officially launched during a hybrid webinar on HPV prevention and screening. Join us by registering here.
