Improving HPV Vaccination Rates 

Vaccine-vials-and-syringe_WEB.jpgHPV vaccination is cancer prevention. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), HPV is estimated to cause nearly 35,000 cases of cancer in men and women every year in the U.S. HPV vaccination can prevent more than 32,000 of these cancers from ever developing by preventing the infections that cause those cancers.

Quality Insights is partnering with the Delaware Division of Public Health in a statewide initiative to provide NO-COST education, training, and resources to health care practices in an effort to increase HPV vaccination rates. To learn more, please download the HPV project flyer.
