HPV Vaccination: a new campaign by Ethno-Medical Center to reach out to young migrants

A vaccine to prevent cancer? When we think of vaccines, most of us think of measles, mumps, rubella, influenza or Covid19. Not many people know the vaccine against the infection with human papilloma virus (HPV), which is the main cause of some forms of cancer.

Ethno-Medical Center e.V. – Germany´s partner organisation in the AcToVax4NAM project – is part of the campaign ‘ENTSCHIEDEN.Gegen Krebs’ (DETERMINED. Against cancer.) Our aim is to reach migrant young people and their parents and inform them about the HPV vaccine.
