Girls get vaccinated against HPV

 PNG Against Cervical Cancer team, led by Gynaecologist Dr Lutty Amos from the Well Woman Centre in Konedobu have been going around schools in NCD vaccinating girls aged between 9 and 14 years.

The program commenced on May 1 following awareness workshops carried out in the schools last month. It ends at the end of May.  This is only the first dose of the HPV vaccination.

Girls who were vaccinated so far had consent forms signed by their parents and guardians.
