HPV and Related Cancers - by country
Here is your source for difficult to locate and country-specific information on prevalance/incidence of HPV and related cervical cancers. With a drop-down list, you can select your country of choice and decide to view the Fact Sheet or entire Summary Report. Shared from our friends at HPV Vaccine Global Community. This will be a useful resource for nurses working in reproductive health and non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
"It is my pleasure to let you know that an updated Monograph on HPV and disease prevention has been published recently (Vaccine, Vol. 30, Suppl.5), together with a Monograph regarding HPV prevention in the GAVI countries (Vaccine, Vol. 30, Suppl.4). These Monographs were presented in the last International Papillomavirus Conference held in Puerto Rico in November 2012 and were very well received.
In the next months 4 additional regional reports will be published, covering HPV and disease prevention in the regions of Sub-Saharan Africa (Vaccine, Vol. 31, Suppl.5), Extended Middle East and Northern Africa (EMENA) (Vaccine, Vol. 31, Suppl.6), Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia (Vaccine, Vol. 31, Suppl.7) and Israel (Vaccine, Vol. 31, Suppl.8). The 'Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia Regional Report' will be available also in Russian and the 'EMENA Regional Report' in French.
Monographs can be accessed on-line through the section 'Publications' of the ICO (Institut Català d'Oncologia) Information Centre on HPV and Cancer:
Under an agreement WHO has with publishers, the monographs are available for free or at low-cost on the internet for countries included in the WHO HINARI Access to Research program (http://www.who.int/hinari/en/).
Printed versions are available on request at Elsevier. The contact person in this process is Gillian Rodgers ()
