Petition Jeremy Hunt, UK Health Secretary: Introduce HPV vaccination for boys to stop many preventable cancers

HPV vaccination at the age of 12/13 can significantly reduce the risk of developing disease and vaccinating both sexes provides the highest level of protection. In the UK currently, only girls are vaccinated through a national programme generally delivered in schools. This petition has been organised by HPV Action, a partnership of 22 patient and professional organisations that all believe both boys and girls should be vaccinated.

There is significant variation in how IRC healthcare teams approach HIV treatment and care, even where two IRCs are co-located and share the same local HIV clinic. This shows that the challenges of the IRC setting can be overcome and patients can receive their right to an equivalent level of HIV care as the NHS provides to the general public.
