HPV Immunization Project
The National AHEC Organization received funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a project to provide education to health professionals regarding the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. The award supports the hiring of a national leadership team, evaluation staff and 10 HPV Regional Coordinators to coordinate activities in each region, assess the environment, work with states and build partnerships. Selected AHEC entities in all 50 states will work to increase awareness as well as train health professionals about the HPV vaccine.
