Human papillomavirus (HPV)

Share our resources to support your local human papillomavirus (HPV) immunization awareness campaign!


Our campaign 'HPV? Me?' is meant to draw attention to the fact that anyone can catch HPV. We hope that people from many walks of life can see themselves reflected in this campaign, gain the information necessary to protect themselves against HPV, and make an informed decision about getting vaccinated against it.

HPV is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the world, and it is estimated that 75% of sexually active Canadians who have not been immunized against HPV will have an HPV infection at some point in their life. In Canada, the HPV vaccine was initially offered only to girls when it was first introduced in 2006, leading many to believe that HPV was a disease that concerned only girls and women. However, this is not the case. HPV can affect anyone of any gender, and can lead to genital warts and various cancers such as penile, cervical, head, and neck cancers.

We can all help protect ourselves and others against this extremely prevalent disease. This HPV Prevention Week (01-07 October 2023), talk to your healthcare professional about getting the HPV vaccine. Because yes, you too can catch HPV. And you can protect against it!
