Statement on the HPV Vaccine

NLIRH advocates a standard of care that will provide Latinas with all the possible options in preventing cervical cancer: regular HPV and cervical cancer screenings during gynecological visits, comprehensive sexuality information, affordable access to reproductive health technologies such as the HPV vaccine and accurate information on preventing HPV and other sexually transmitted infections. NLIRH supports Latina’s full access to new reproductive technology when it is coupled with unbiased information and implementation that is free from coercive policies and practices.
