What CDC Is Doing About HPV and Cancer

Assessing the Burden of HPV-Associated Cancers in the United States

CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control leads efforts to use cancer registry data to estimate how many human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cancers occur in the United States. Each year, the most recent estimates of HPV-associated cancers at the national and state levels are published in United States Cancer Statistics Data Briefs.

National Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Campaign

CDC developed the national campaign, Inside Knowledge About Gynecologic Cancer, to raise awareness of gynecologic cancers, including cervical cancer.

National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program

CDC’s National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program supports local efforts to increase HPV vaccination.

National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program

CDC’s National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program provides access to critical breast and cervical cancer screening services for underserved women in the United States. Find out if you qualify.

National Program of Cancer Registries

Established in 1994, CDC’s National Program of Cancer Registries supports and promotes the collection and use of registry data in 46 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Pacific Island Jurisdictions, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. In collaboration with the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program, the NPCR collects surveillance data for all cancers and publishes them yearly in United States Cancer Statistics. These data provide the latest cancer information on the entire U.S. population and often are used by funded programs to create burden assessments that guide program planning, outreach, and education efforts.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Website

This website provides HPV information and resources for parents, health care providers, and partners. It is a collaboration between CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases; National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion; National Center for HIV, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention; and National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases.
