Human papillomavirus and HPV vaccines : technical information for policy-makers and health professionals

This document reviews the evidence on the burden of HPV-related cervical cancer, thesafety and efficacy of HPV vaccines and the cost-effectiveness of HPV vaccines. The document provides the technical information needed by decision-makers who may consider HPV introduction and complements the recently produced document '' Preparing for the introduction of HPV vaccines. Policy and programme guidance for countries'' (WHO/RHR/06.11), which lacks the scientific basis for decision-making.
