Delving Even Deeper
New York Challenge sets high bar for HPV vaccination, Geoff Watts, The Lancet, Vol. 391, No. 10126, p1137
Cervical cancer in India: neglected and stigmatized, Sophie Cousins, The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health, Vol. 2, No. 5, p314–315
Here are links to a selection of recently published papers about cervical cancer or HPV vaccination (most recent first). I’ve cited only freely available papers. NB If the link to the Lancet doesn’t work, you can register for free.
If you spend 30 minutes reading a sample of these papers, you’ll come away with a clear sense of how we stand at a time of historic opportunity. There are ways now to dramatically scale up HPV vaccination and to target screening more effectively (ie using HPV testing to identify women at risk) which would result in sharply reduced cervical cancer rates in the years ahead. And save the lives of millions of women.
