HPV Prevention Week 2019
#CANADAvsHPV

October 1 – 7, 2019

Join the Federation of Medical Women and numerous supporting organizations and individuals who are committed to preventing the spread of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and the cancers it can cause.

HPV Prevention Week is designed to bring Canadians together to engage in a series of events and initiatives to increase awareness of an infection that is estimated to affect more than 75% of sexually active men and women in their lifetime.  The human papilloma virus causes genital warts, but persistent disease can cause 6 different types of cancer:  Oropharyngeal, Penile, Anal, Vaginal, Cervical, and Vulvar.

#CANADAvsHPV, demonstrates international leadership in how we  – doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, public health officials, NGOs, pharmacists, patients, government and industry – can work together to educate all Canadians to:

  • close the preventative care gap
  • encourage behaviour that could ultimately save lives.

For 2019, we’re taking HPV Prevention Week local with screenings of Lady Ganga: Nilza’s Story.
