Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the cause of numerous diseases, including mouth and other cancers. It has been estimated that HPV is the cause of 5% of all cancer cases. HPV Action exists to tackle this problem.
HPV Action was launched in 2013 by 22 patient and professional organisations. It aims to persuade the government to extend the current HPV vaccination programme to include boys as well as girls.
One of HPV Action's members, British Dental Health Foundation (a national charity), is collecting donations on HPV Action's behalf. Every penny raised will be passed to HPV Action.
Please help us by donating, it's a very important cause, and all donations, no matter how big or small, will be warmly received.
