NUS is campaigning with HPV Action to ensure the UK national HPV vaccination programme should include both boys and girls to prevent a range of HPV-related conditions, including genital warts and 5% of all cancers. The current system unjustly leaves many men completely unprotected from HPV. We believe an HPV vaccination that covers both boys and girls would improve public health, tackle health inequalities and be cost-effective. Every year of delay leaves almost 400,000 boys unvaccinated and therefore left at risk from many HPV-related diseases and ill health.
To stop this inequality, get your MP to sign the EDM for Gender Neutral HPV Vaccination. You can use this template letter to write to your MP asking them to sign the EDM.
