The National AHEC Organization received funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a project to provide education to health professionals regarding the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. Selected AHEC entities in all 50 states will work to increase awareness as well as train health professionals about the HPV vaccine, in an overall effort to increase HPV vaccination rates.

View a list of those currently participating in the program. One AHEC entity per state has been selected to carry out state and local HPV project training activities. Each state will work closely with HPV Regional Coordinators to develop contact with immunization organizations, provide continuing education to health professionals and distribute promotional messages.
All it took was one contact — to reconnect with a former AHEC colleague — that led to much success for the Three Rivers AHEC in Georgia in their HPV Project work.
