HPV task force members, Dr. Christine Palmay and Dr. Vivien Brown, at the most recent meeting held in August 2023.
In early 2022, the Federation of Medical Women of Canada (FMWC) convened a task force that aimed to address the crisis in the Ontario school-based HPV immunization program and to ensure that school-based immunization would recover to (and eventually surpass) pre-pandemic levels.
The task force met again in August 2023 to review the situation and propose new recommendations.
The recommendations and guidelines described within the 2023 White Paper could save thousands of lives by reducing the instances of preventable HPV-related cancers and greatly reduce the burden on our health care system in the future.
