In 2013, the World Health Organization set a goal to improve human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine coverage globally. This has led to a united effort investigation of the barriers to vaccine access and uptake and further understanding of HPV-related cancer monitoring. Catch up on the current status of HPV, including knowledge gaps, areas of needed research, and nursing’s role in clinical care and scientific discovery.


  1. Describe HPV cancer incidence and vaccination rates, globally and in the United States.
  2. Discuss the global effort to raise awareness and action on HPV vaccination uptake.
  3. Identify barriers to HPV vaccination uptake and current and future research in this area, from the perspectives of different stakeholders.
  4. Define the role of oncology nurses in research, translation, and clinical care in the area of HPV vaccination uptake.
