Reacting to the Department of Health (DoH) announcement that they are expanding the HPV vaccination programme to protect young women against genital warts as well as cervical cancer, Rebecca Findlay spokesperson for FPA said:
“We are delighted with this announcement. It's a responsible decision which will result in a radical improvement of an entire generation's sexual health from a very common sexually transmitted infection. FPA have been campaigning and lobbying government for a different vaccination since the original immunisation programme started, so we are pleased this has been successful.”
