As many of you know the Mouth Cancer Foundation is part of a group called HPV Action. One of the main items on our campaign agenda is to fight for the right for boys, as well as girls, to be vaccinated against the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) – one of the leading causes of mouth cancers. 

HPV Action has launched a brand new website, www.jabsfortheboys.uk dedicated to the plight of the boys and this issue. The website offers advice and guidance to the parents of boys, boys themselves and adult men about the pros and cons of HPV vaccination. It will help boys make an informed decision about whether to have the vaccination and how to obtain it (including privately). The platform also contains information for health professionals. All the information in this website is based on the best-possible evidence and has been checked by medical experts. It also complies with the NHS Information Standard.
