HPV Immunization Project
Human Papillomavirus Vaccination is Cancer Prevention.
The National AHEC Organization received funding from the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention to provide education to health professionals regarding the Human Papillomavirus
(HPV) vaccine. Selected state AHEC centers work to increase awareness as well as train
health professionals about the HPV vaccine, some by developing partnership with other
organizations such as the American Cancer Society.
Contact your Area Health Education Center HPV Ambassador for information on professional
education opportunities about HPV Vaccination or check the Alaska CACHE (Clearinghouse for Alaska's Continuing Health Education).

The CDC has developed a new resource, the #HowIRecommend video series, so clinicians can see how other providers make recommendations on raising vaccination
rates and addressing HPV vaccination questions in their practice. They address common
parent and patient questions in short 1-2 minute snippets.
Funding for this project was made possible by the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, cooperative agreement number, NH23IP000960. The views expressed in the
