The final report of the evaluation of the National Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccination Program has now been released.
The evaluation was undertaken by the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance (NCIRS), in collaboration with key partners. The evaluation focused on the implementation of the Program, evaluating its key strengths and challenges, as well as suggesting recommendations to improve implementation of similar vaccination programs in the future.
Overall, the evaluation is extremely positive and strongly supports Australia’s reputation as a world leader in implementing school-based immunisation programs and preventing HPV-related cancers and disease.
