HPV Webinar
HPV Vaccination: Insights from States with Highest and Lowest HPV Vaccination Rates
Over the past year, CSTE has worked with the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) on a project to highlight the importance of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine as a public health priority. NFID and CSTE convened subject-matter experts to talk about the long-term health impact of HPV and the role of immunization.
CSTE has conducted interviews with the states that have the highest and lowest HPV vaccination rates. CSTE members identified and conducted calls with state epidemiologists and immunization program staff to discuss successes and barriers with regard to vaccines for children and public clinics, HPV vaccination compared with other adolescent vaccination, and communication efforts toward healthcare practitioners and the public.
The outcomes of these interviews were presented by representatives from states in the CSTE/NFID cohosted webinar “HPV Vaccination: Insights from States with Highest and Lowest HPV Vaccination Rates,” which took place on November 4, 2014.
