In the U.S., every year 14 million people are newly infected and 26,000 cancers attributable to HPV are diagnosed. Four leading U.S. medical organizations - the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American College of Physicians (ACP), and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) - together with the Immunization Coalition and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have issued a joint statement calling on U.S. physicians to strongly recommend the vaccination to their patients, especially adolescent girls and boys. Currently only 30% of eligible girls and young women in the U.S. have received the HPV vaccination.
