  1. HPV vaccines protect against cervical cancer. The vaccine is used in more than 80 countries More than 80 million girls and women worldwide have now received these vaccines In some countries, the uptake is greater than 90%. In Japan in 2013, false rumours spread on social media about the safety of HPV vaccines. Some parents opted out of HPV vaccination on behalf of their daughters. Denmark and Ireland have faced the same problem. What’s the worry? Specifically, some have claimed that the vaccine is linked to: - complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) - postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) Why the confusion? CRPS and POTS are real but very rare conditions that can affect teenagers. HPV vaccines are given to teenagers, leading some to wonder whether there is a connection. Are the concerns reasonable? The concerns are understandable but unfounded. There is no causal link between HPV vaccines and the symptoms of CRPS and POTS. How do we know? Independent experts at the European Medicines Agency looked at the rates of these conditions in teenagers who had had the vaccine. They compared this to teenagers who had not had the vaccine. The rates of POTS and CRPS were the same in both groups.
  2. À l'occasion de la Journée mondiale contre le cancer 2019, le Dr Elisabete Weiderpass, directrice du Centre international de recherche sur le cancer (CIRC), a réaffirmé l'engagement du CIRC dans la lutte contre le cancer du col de l'utérus et a pleinement souscrit à la position de l'Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) sur la vaccination contre le papillomavirus humain (VPH) , confirmant que la vaccination contre le VPH est sûre, efficace et essentielle dans la lutte contre le cancer du col utérin. Chaque année, plus de 310 000 femmes meurent d'un cancer du col utérin. Ce chiffre devrait atteindre près de 460 000 décès par an d’ici 2040, à moins que des mesures préventives ne soient mises en œuvre rapidement. Pour la Journée mondiale du cancer 2019, le CIRC se concentre sur les projets qu'il réalise, souvent en partenariat avec l'OMS et d'autres, dans le but d'éliminer le cancer du col de l'utérus en tant que problème de santé publique au cours des prochaines décennies.
