Mission: HPV Cancer Free Texas

Project Description

The American Cancer Society’s Mission: HPV Cancer Free Texas (HPVCFT) is a three-year project focused on increasing preteen vaccination rates through a four-pronged approach: increase public awareness, convene key partners, implement evidence-based clinical interventions, and measure impact. The campaign will impact hundreds of thousands of preteens across a 26-county North Texas area over the next three years. The goal of the campaign is to have 80 percent of 13-year-old boys and girls in the targeted counties fully vaccinated with HPV vaccine by 2026.
