This bill would:
· Create a CDC-run national public awareness campaign to increase HPV vaccination rates (especially among males and communities most impacted by HPV cancers) and increase Americans understanding of HPV-associated cancers
· Increase funding at the National Cancer Institute to expand, intensify and coordinate research on HPV-associated cancers
· Give states additional resources to improve their immunization information systems
· Focus on early detection by expanding funding for the CDC’s Cervical Cancer Early Detection initiative to make sure we are getting the resources out to underserved communities since they are all too often bearing the brunt of cervical cancer deaths.
