Article Extract

In the new National Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) Vaccination Program the HPV vaccine, Gardasil, will be provided free to girls and women aged 12 to 26 years. The school-based program started in April this year and the community-based program will start in July. This program is expected to have a significant impact on the incidence of HPV infection and markedly reduce the clinical burden of HPV related disease in Australia.
