The National AHEC Organization (NAO) received funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a project to provide continuing education to health professionals about the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. The Maine AHEC Network was awarded a grant to facilitate this effort in Maine.

The objectives of this project are to:

  1. Define the importance of HPV vaccination for cancer prevention and the rationale for vaccinating at ages 11 or 12.
  2. Make providers aware of recommendations for HPV vaccine for girls and for boys.
  3. Provide useful and compelling information about HPV vaccine to parents to aid in making the decision to vaccinate.
  4. Provide resources relevant to current immunization practice.
