България - Bulgaria
In Bulgaria, the HPV Action Now project aims at bringing together, uniting and supporting organisations and institutions that work towards HPV vaccination and cervical cancer screening.
This campaign will be coordinated with the Bulgarian HPV Coalition, a national expert non-governmental coalition actively supported by the World Health Organization. It's objectives are:
- raising public awareness around the risk of contracting the virus;
- encouraging regular screening;
- achieving a high level of vaccination, in accordance with WHO recommendations.
ECO and the HPV Coalition had a fruitful meeting in Sofia at the Bulgarian Parliament on 19 September 2023, where we encouraged local MPs to continue efforts towards HPV prevention through vaccination.
Furthermore, our CEO Mike Morrissey was a keynote speaker at the second Bulgarian national conference on vaccine-preventable diseases, which was held on 10-11-12 November 2023. It was the largest event in the country dedicated to this topic, organised by the Bulgarian HPV Coalition and Astra Forum Foundation, bringing together leading specialists in vaccination and prevention to discuss the latest progress and challenges.
